On Monday, March 31st at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by
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)
We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:
Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
