Abstract:

LXD is a container management tool built by the LXC team on top of LXC. It offers a complete REST API to manage containers across the network and supports advanced features such as fine grained resource control and live migration.

The LXD container manager is a natural fit for anyone who needs to manage a large number of containers spread across a vast number of hosts. Its advanced resource management capabilities and support for runtime snapshotting of both the underlying filesystem and running state makes it perfect for environments where performance is critical and where the ability to suspend, migrate or abort a task is essential.

This talk will go over the main features of LXD, a pretty thorough demonstration of its abilities, a run through the work currently being done and answer any question the audience may have about LXD.
