Containers on Linux (Wim Coekaerts)

 

At Oracle OpenWorld we talked about Linux Containers. Here is an example of getting a Linux container going with Oracle Linux 6.1, UEK2 beta and btrfs. This is just an example, not released, production, bug-free... for those that don't read README files ;-)

This container example is using the existing Linux cgroups features in the mainline kernel (and also in UEK, UEK2) and lxc tools to create the environments....
