Container mechanics in rkt and Linux

Linux containers as a virtualization solution are becoming more prevalent. An example of a container solution is rkt, whose development started end of 2014. Under the hood, container software on Linux uses the same cgroups and namespaces API. Both container software and kernel code for containers continue to be developed.

Alban will first describe the Linux API that make containers possible: namespaces and cgroups. Then he will explain how rkt containers use this Linux API.
