Sylabs Launches Global Partner Program


Program provides partners with a commercially supported portfolio of services for organizations with AI, machine learning and deep learning workloads

PacificTeck and Redapt sign on as partners to help expand Singularity in high performance computing and enterprise performance computing, respectively


Albany, CA – June 20, 2018 – Sylabs, the leading provider of solutions and services based on Singularity technology, today announced the launch of a new program for partners. The Sylabs Partner Program offers IT providers a licensing platform that they can use to deliver the commercially supported container platform SingularityPRO through their own sales channels. This includes access to signed package repositories, backported bug and security fixes, and a portfolio of services designed for the container ecosystem. In addition, the Sylabs Partner Program will provide training, certifications, architectural practices and support programs to fit the specific needs of the partner and their customers.


Launch partners include:




“As organizations look for ways to take advantage of data in their businesses, Sylabs’ portfolio of Singularity-based technologies opens up new opportunities for partners to transform customers’ environments and provide resources to support the growth of the container ecosystem,” said Gregory Kurtzer, founder and CEO of Sylabs. “Our global partner program provides valuable resources to accelerate the delivery of services to support computation science and the growing analytics workload in the enterprise and HPC spaces.”


Founded in late 2015, Singularity is now in its 19th release (version 2.5.1) and runs over a million containers a day. It is the platform of choice by academia and commercial high performance computing (HPC) centers, and its security features and support for high performance hardware make it attractive for enterprises deploying data-intensive applications such as artificial intelligence, machine / deep learning, compute-driven analytics, and data science.


Sylabs will showcase its new program at ISC High Performance 2018, to be held June 24-28, in Germany, Messe Frankfurt (Hall 3 and Forum), Germany. Sylabs will present a tutorial on using Singularity containers for HPC and machine learning on Sunday, June 24, as part of the conference.
