Linux Containers and the future cloud

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