The Future of Containers in Linux and OpenStack
Virtualization Containers have gained in acceptance as the platform for launching PaaS and SaaS services, but what about IaaS? This talk will cover the basics of containers, what they are, how they work and what advances have recently been made in Linux that allow containers to be the most versatile platform for cloud services.
OpenVZ is container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated Linux containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server; a container can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.
OpenVZ is free open source software, available under GNU GPL.
