In this paper the authors describe recent accomplishments in providing a virtualized environment concept and prototype for scientific application development and deployment as part of the Harness High-Performance Computing (HPC) work-bench research effort. The presented paper focuses on tools and mechanisms that simplify scientific application development and deployment tasks, such that only minimal adaptation is needed when moving from one HPC system to another or after HPC system upgrades. The overall technical approach focuses on the concept of adapting the HPC system environment to the actual needs of individual scientific applications instead of the traditional scheme of adapting scientific applications to individual HPC system environment properties.
