For the purpose of Distributing computing, scientists have been using pre-configured VM images to let volunteers contribute towards micro-processing tasks. But, since the introduction of Docker, life has changed and so have performance benchmarks. We propose an system that uses benefits of Docker to hopefully perform far better than currently achieved milestones through Vms which have a huge overhead of starting up, as compared to Docker containers. (Imagine this awesome project – CernVM, being dockerized, simplified!)

Can be used for:

  • Image Processing
  • General Data Analysis
  • Scientific Computing
  • CrowdSourcing projects.

Future Goals: A pullgable, dockerized, distributed computing tool in general..
