On Monday, March 17th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by 
Rami Rosen:

    Linux Containers and the future cloud


This lecture is a sequel to the "Resource Management in Linux" lecture, 
given in Haifux in May 2013 (see: http://haifux.org/lectures/299/, audio 
recording available)

Lightweight process virtualization is a virtualization technology which 
exists for many years, in Linux and in other OSs, and which matured 
significantly in the recent year. Linux-based containers are based on 
this technology. In this lecture, I will discuss the Linux kernel 
infrastructure for Linux-based containers as well as several interesting 
userspace projects which use this technology.

Following is a list of the main topics which will be discussed:

* Namespaces and Cgroups - the building blocks of containers.
* A Short survery of Linux container projects (open source and proprietary).
   * The LXC project:
   * LXC containers
   * LXC management
* Docker - the Open Source containers engine project.
* CRIU (Chekpoint/Restore in userspace)

and more.
