It’s all about containers. All attention is turning to new and innovative variants of this cloud development technology. From LXC and Docker to our recent introduction, LXD – all signs point to an explosion in appetite for for containers, and the many benefits they bring to developers.

Containers are revolutionizing the way the enterprise manages cloud infrastructure. They provide flexible safe-havens to allow innovation to flourish, and, in the case of LXD, the speed and density it takes to launch hundreds of machines on a single server.

In Vancouver at ODS, the focus for the Canonical team was to bring to life the power and flexibility of LXD. Is it a hypervisor? What about Docker? How does LXC fit in and does it really crush KVM on density and speed? We’ve captured James Page and Ryan Harper’s OpenStack Summit keynote above which sought to answer all these questions and more.
