Multi-host containerised HPC cluster

The new Docker networking put into action to spin up a SLURM cluster

With Docker v1.9 a new networking system was introduced, which allows multi-host networking to work out-of-the-box in any Docker environment. This talk provides an introduction on what Docker networking provides, followed by a demo that spins up a full SLURM cluster across multiple machines. The demo is based on QNIBTerminal, a Consul backed set of Docker Images to spin up a broad set of software stacks.
