OpenStack with Machine Containers

Replacing VM's with Fast and Secure Machine Containers

Find out why LXD machine containers should be part of your OpenStack cloud!

LXD provides Linux machine containers to users with the performance of bare metal servers and the security and flexibility of virtual machines.

By combining the LXD hypervisor with OpenStack (using Nova LXD) we can provide fast machine containers to users of a IaaS cloud with the same semantics and functionality of full KVM virtual machines.

This session will cover in detail:

The LXD hypervisor.

The Nova LXD integration of LXD into OpenStack.

Performance analysis of LXD vs KVM machines deployed as part of an OpenStack Cloud.
