Compared to KVM or Xen, LXC has very low overhead since it runs processes within a common host kernel, instead of emulating complete machines.
LXC relies on kernel namespaces (providing isolation), and control groups (ensuring fair sharing of resources). We will detail their respective roles.
We will also show how to use unioning filesystems for fast & lightweight provisioning of environments.
