Categories of Containers

The container world is not monolithic, so we have to define some terms.

Container Types

There are three types: Docker, Singularity, and Shifter

For Singularity there are two sub-types: Sandbox and Singularity Image Format (SIF)

Installed Software Levels

There are three levels: raw, gluex-prereqs, and gluex-software

Group Binding Styles

There are two styles for binding /group/halld: system-binds-group (SBG) and user-binds-group (UBG)

Distribution Systems

There are three methods we use for distributing containers: DockerHub, Web, CVMFS.
