Today we’d like to continue our blog series on containerization. As our first two articles (1 and 2) were dedicated to theory, this post will focus on one tool and its features: LXD.
LXD (short for Linux Container Daemon) was created by Stéphane Graber, who works for Canonical. His name is well known in the professional community as he is also one of the authors of another popular container solution: LXC. Naturally, LXD is built on LXC, which makes it easier to work with containers and adds a wide range of new abilities.
