Docker containers are the de-facto standard to package, distribute, and run applications on cloud-based infrastructures. Commercial providers and private clouds expand their offer with container orchestration engines, making the management of resources and containerized applications tightly integrated. The Storage Group of CERN IT leverages on container technologies to provide ScienceBox: An integrated software bundle with storage and computing services for general purposes and scientific use. ScienceBox features distributed scalable storage, sync&share functionalities, and a web-based data analysis service, and can be deployed on a single machine or scaled-out across multiple servers. ScienceBox has proven to be helpful in different contexts, from High Energy Physics analysis to education for high schools, and has been successfully deployed on different cloud infrastructure and heterogeneous hardware.
