This talk will discuss the process of containerising and running a Slurm cluster within a Kubernetes environment. The discussion will primarily focus on the challenges encountered while building the container images and how to orchestrate them effectively. During the talk, we will also demonstrate how pods can be run as a complete operating system, including all necessary services. Additionally, we will might be able to benchmark results of running MPI (Message Passing Interface) jobs within this containerised environment.
