Getting Started with LXD and System Containers - Stéphane Graber & Christian Brauner, Canonical Ltd. (Seating Limited to First 50 Attendees)

Feedback form is now closed.
Want a simple, easy to deploy way to run just about any standard Linux distribution on any system without any overhead? Have you considered system containers?

System containers run an entire Linux distribution, providing an experience that's extremely similar to a virtual machine, minus the virtualization aspect.
This makes for no-overhead systems that are very easy to manage and monitor.

In this session, we'll cover what system containers are, when they may make sense for you and then go through how to setup LXD, a system container manager on a number of common Linux distributions, discuss storage and network setup and get some containers running!

Access to a modern Linux system that can be used to run LXD would be beneficial for hands on experience, but isn't strictly required to follow along.

Important NoteThis session has limited seating and is available to the first 50 attendees.
