=== Adding snaps for secure, transactional packages in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS ===

Ollie Ries introduces his post by talking about how Ubuntu has expanded into the realm of phones and Internet of Things devices and how this has required thhttp://www.pcworld.com/article/3056668/linux/ubuntu-1604-will-support-snaps-alongside-deb-packages-for-improved-software-installation.htmlem to “solve real problems in security and reliability.” He continues by announcing “In Ubuntu 16.04 LTS we will make it possible to install snap packages alongside traditional deb packages. These two packaging formats live quite comfortably next to one another and enable us to maintain our existing processes for development and updates to the OS.”

=== Andrea Corbellini: Running Docker Swarm inside LXC ===

Andrea Corbellini writes about his experiences using Docker Swarm inside LXC containers. Andrea, who's been using them for a while now says he finds them “pretty lightweight” compared to virtual machines, making LXC containers “ideal for development and simulation purposes.” He uses example including commands & real-output to shows us how to create a Swarm manager container, modify it, start it & install Docker and much more. The example is intended to simulate clusters on your machine, rather than showing how to create a production environment.

Adding snaps for secure, transactional packages in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Ollie Ries introduces his post by talking about how Ubuntu has expanded into the realm of phones and Internet of Things devices and how this has required thhttp://www.pcworld.com/article/3056668/linux/ubuntu-1604-will-support-snaps-alongside-deb-packages-for-improved-software-installation.htmlem to “solve real problems in security and reliability.” He continues by announcing “In Ubuntu 16.04 LTS we will make it possible to install snap packages alongside traditional deb packages. These two packaging formats live quite comfortably next to one another and enable us to maintain our existing processes for development and updates to the OS.”

Andrea Corbellini: Running Docker Swarm inside LXC

Andrea Corbellini writes about his experiences using Docker Swarm inside LXC containers. Andrea, who's been using them for a while now says he finds them “pretty lightweight” compared to virtual machines, making LXC containers “ideal for development and simulation purposes.” He uses example including commands & real-output to shows us how to create a Swarm manager container, modify it, start it & install Docker and much more. The example is intended to simulate clusters on your machine, rather than showing how to create a production environment.
