BC Project: FY20-02
Date of Policy: 07 Oct 2020
Last Updated: 06 Oct 2020 (see Revision Log)

This policy requires a "common" version of the software container tool, Singularity, be available to users on all HPCMP allocated HPC systems. Periodically, the Baseline Configuration (BC) Team will review the version of Singularity and will designate a newer version to be the common version. This version will be the default for the module command and made available by executing module load singularity. Other versions of Singularity may be made available by executing module load singularity/<version>.

As of 06 Oct 2020, the BC common version is 3.5.3.
