Kliko - a Scientific Computer Container Format

Molenaar Gijs

Kliko was born out of our needs to have a more formal and uniform way of scheduling batch compute tasks on arbitrary public and private cloud platforms. Docker is perfect for encapsulating and distributing software, but the input output flow is not defined. Kliko is an attempt to create a standard way to define compute input, output and parameters. Kliko is already being used in production at SKA South Africa.
