SIF-focused interoperability between Singularity and Azure via ORAS is a work in progress; those interested can monitor and, of course, contribute to the existing collaboration via the project’s GitHub PR. Based upon the rapid rate of progress, users and administrators can anticipate initial availability in an upcoming release of Singularity.
Sylabs and the Singularity community have always been focused on interoperability and this integration extends the concept to create a broader solution-set for the container community. For customers that already use Azure Container Registry or other OCI registries, this new collaboration will allow for an integrated path towards adopting SIF containers into their workflows. It enables customers using Singularity to leverage their investments in ACR and other OCI complaint registries, without having to run and maintain another SIF distribution library. Additionally, customers now have the option of incorporating Azure into their Singularity containerized workflows and can look forward to even closer integration of Singularity across Azure's offerings and services.
