LXC - Linux Containers

LXC refers to linux containers, usually created using either libvirt or liblxc. Both suites are actively developed and used, and both use namespaces and cgroups to implement the containers.

Software suites around liblxc

Liblxc is designed to be very flexible, and comes with some basic tools for creating, cloning, and managing containers. Many people have written their own management layers using the liblxc commands (perhaps some using the libraries?) to suit their specific needs and usage preferences. Please feel free to add your own here.

  • lxc-ubuntu-x - focuses on flexible container generation based on existing containers and templates.

  • lxc - Just called lxc, this suite allows creating, starting and stopping (Ubuntu) containers and running commands in containers without ssh.
