Chapter 28 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, which has some significant enhancements over previous versions.

For information about how to use the Docker Engine to create application containers, see the Oracle Container Runtime for Docker User's Guide.
