Hi steffen,
we propose singularity in our hcp env too. There is no issue to run
*docker* images as images follow a standard managed by all *docker*
like tools.

For info, you mat have a look too at podman. Like singularity it
supports root-less env.

Singularity cons is non-root env , but for most of our users this is
fine as long as they do not need to modify container content.

May be an issue for *some* tools writing in /var/lib|cache etc.. but
most will be fine.
