LinuX Containers (LXC) have aroused interest for the past several years, as a lightweight, more efficient, and more flexible approach to virtualization. Containers  have a lower footprint, less overhead, and boot faster than conventional VMs However, they haven't been widely deployed yet. Recently, the emergence of complementary open-source technologies, such as AUFS BTTRFS, and Docker, have made it significantly easier to exploit and automate this powerful, Linux-based technology. It is now possible to take any application and its dependencies, encapsulate them in a portable, lightweight container, and run that same container on virtually any Linux server The same containerized application that runs successfully on a developer's laptop will run consistently and quickly on a baremetal server, an OpenStack cluster, public cloud, VM, etc. In this presentation, we will discuss how to use this powerful combination of technologies to enable large scale automated systems, such as web apps, databases, and backend services, without depending on a particular stack or provider. We will also discuss the application of these technologies to continuous integration and deployment and hybrid cloud.
