Chapter 8 Linux Containers

This chapter describes how to use Linux Containers (LXC) to isolate applications and entire operating system images from the other processes that are running on a host system. The version of LXC described here is 1.0.7 or later running under UEK R3 QU6 or later, which provides some significant enhancements over previous versions.

Information on using the Docker engine to manage containers and images under Oracle Linux is provided in the Oracle Linux Docker User's Guide available at
