I think you already got the state-of-art on this topic by Mike in
Another interesting approach I follow is a combination of Spack and
Singularity which I recently discussed on a workshop . Spack is a
nice Supercomputer PACKage manager, which allows to configure packages
rather than only installing some binary ones. Mike recently got
maintainer of the GNU Octave package there.
Singularity can be considered as some more lightweight Docker with CUDA,
MPI, and InfiniBand support. Older Singularity builds of mine not using
Spack are available here [2,3].
One drawback of this approach is, that building those images still takes
ages, like MXE. But I work on a solution to reduce the repetitive build
