LXD (pronounced “lex-dee”) is a container hypervisor from Ubuntu. LXD containers look and act like virtual machines, but have the lightweight performance and scalability of process containers. You can use LXD on its own to deploy traditional workload applications, or you can use Docker containers inside LXD containers to get the best of both technologies.
