Containers and LXD

LXD is an easy to use system container and virtual machine manager. On top of letting you create and run containers and virtual machines on a wide selection of storage and network options as well as featuring a modern REST API for remote management, it can also be very easily clustered. This talk will cover what system containers and virtual machines are and when they each make sense followed by an introduction to LXD itself and a pretty comprehensive demo of LXD's main features.

LXD is available on any Linux distribution that supports the snap package format as well as through native packages on ArchLinux, Alpine, Gentoo, OpenSUSE and more. The client part of LXD can run natively on any Linux, BSD, MacOS or Windows systems accessing a remote LXD server running on Linux.

Stéphane Graber is the engineering manager for the LXD team at Canonical Ltd. He is the upstream project leader for LXC and LXD and a frequent speaker and track leader at events related to containers and the Linux kernel. Stéphane is also a longtime contributor to the Ubuntu Linux distribution as an Ubuntu core developer and former Ubuntu technical board member. In his spare time, Stéphane helps organize a yearly security conference and contest in Montréal, Northsec, where his knowledge of Linux and network infrastructure is used to simulate the most complex of environments for contestants.

Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more! We'll also have a give-away from No Starch Press for one lucky participant. You won't want to miss it!
