Discover the new container manager built on top of LXC


LXD is a new container manager, it’s built on top of LXC, using its API. It offers remote management capabilities and safe security defaults as well as an image based workflow.

As with LXC, the focus of LXD is on system containers and so about providing a VM-like experience to the user.

This presentation will go through the main features of LXD through a demo of its capabilities.
