Virtualization at the operating system level utilizing container technologies provides reduced performance overhead over Type-1 hypervisors for HPC and also adds many possibilities to significantly improve the often demanded flexibility of such an installation. This paper discusses technologies and concepts on several layers that can be applied to securely integrate container-based virtualization in a multitenant HPC environment, requiring both security and high performance.
