Large Scale Container Management with LXD and OpenStack - Stéphane Graber, Canonical

LXD, our new container manager (lightervisor) can either be driven by a simple command line tool or through an OpenStack Nova Compute plugin.

This talk focuses on the latter. The LXD integration with OpenStack that's developed and shipped in Ubuntu makes it possible to mix virtual machines and containers in a safe, scalable and very natural way.

This means that with nova-compute-lxd, it's now possible to have some users get regular VMs and some others get containers, using the exact same source image. Management of the resulting container also works exactly like a virtual machine would, with the difference that it's much faster and less resource hungry than a full fledged virtual machine.

This talk will go over what nova-compute-lxd is, go through some performance tests we did and include a brief demo of nova-compute-lxd in action.
