LXD Is the New Pure-Container Hypervisor for Linux, Says Mark Shuttleworth


lxdCanonical’s Stéphane Graber has announced earlier today, September 16, that version 0.18 of the LXD next-generation container hypervisor for Linux kernel-based operating systems has been tagged, and it is available for download.

Mr. Graber’s announcement has been backed by Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonical and Ubuntu, who writes on his Google+ page that LXD is now the new pure-container hypervisor for GNU/Linux systems, allowing users to test their apps at scale while running hundreds of instances of Linux OSes, including Ubuntu, Arch Linux, or CentOS.
