Infrastructure for Enabling Reproducibility

We see container technology as key to achieving the reproducibility goals. Containers are widely used tools to address dependency challenges and to make complicated software tools more portable. Currently available container technologies, such as Docker and Singularity, improve dependency and configuration management i.e., portability of the application. However, container solutions have a steep learning curve and often require dedicated personnel for management.

The goal of the Reproducibility Infrastructure project is to assess the requirements of existing infrastructure, examine how containers can be seamlessly adopted as part of existing infrastructure, and determine to what extent can emerging containers can containers solve solve some reproducibility infrastructure issues.
