On Monday, March 31st at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by 
Rami Rosen:

    Linux Containers and the future cloud (part II)

If you missed part I, please refresh your memory on the "Resource 
Management in Linux" lecture, given in Haifux in May 2013 (see: 
http://haifux.org/lectures/299/, audio recording available). Much of 
part I was dedicated to this.


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.

We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
