LXD: The Container Hypervisor

LXC is a production-ready container management toolset focused on flexible container management. Its container management API has language bindings for many languages including C, python, Go, lua, and more.

LXD is a new project by the LXC community. It provides a REST API for LXC, an improved command line interface and OpenStack integration plugin. The command line interface lets you control both local and remote LXD in a perfectly transparent way including live migration. LXD is also strongly focused on security, uses user namespaces by default, integrates with apparmor, selinux, seccomp and any other security mechanism available.

This talk will present the most exciting features of LXD, including a walk-through of the new command line tool.
