• LXC is great way to deploy applications. Let’s take a web stack like PHP, MySQL, Nginx and an app, you could install it in a VM but with a performance overhead.



      With a container you get near bare metal speeds and lower resource usage that allows you to scale efficiently.

    • LXD 0.19 release announcement    29th of September 2015 

    • Skipping Docker for LXC for Local Development

    • Traditional hypervisors allow the environment to be secured directly by the server hardware. Such features keep the VM isolated from other things that are running on the system. Canonical’s hypervisor Openstack has Docker support through the nova Docker driver.

    • The focus of LXD is on system containers. That is, a container which runs a clean copy of a Linux distribution or a full appliance. From a design perspective, LXD doesn’t care about what’s running in the container.

    • The simplest way for somebody to try LXD is by using it with its command line tool. This can easily be done on your laptop or desktop machine.


      On an Ubuntu 15.04 system (or by using ppa:ubuntu-lxc/lxd-stable on 14.04 or above), you can install LXD with:


      sudo apt-get install lxd
