LXC (Linux Containers)

  • LXC is an os-level virtualization method for multiple isolated Linux Systems (Containers) using a single Linux Kernel
  • Before we understand lxc lets try to understand process. Process is a program in execution. In OS when we want to use any application a process will be launched. Each Process will have some memory assigned to it and it is executed by cpu. Each Process will have its own Identifier which is called as Process id
  • LXC create isolated environments with each environment getting cpu, memory and network id or whatever is required to run application in isolated environment.
  • This environment is Process to the system which runs lxc and for the application running in container lxc will look like full blown os.
