Container computing does not have a lengthy history in the academic environment. Traditionally, HPC holds the first place because of high resource availability, direct multi-tenancy support, and researchers having legacy experience. This session will introduce efforts made at the CERIT-SC/Institute of Computer Science of Masaryk University to implement Kubernetes infrastructure and move scientific computing to containers. We will present challenges of multi-tenancy assurance, deploying applications under users, resource sharing, and building trust towards containerization among the research community. We will discuss several created solutions, present a couple of European open-source projects and demonstrate how containers help in the academic environment. Furthermore, we present other issues we fight and propose ideas on new features.
