LXC 1.0

Lean and Quick


LXC 1.0 is a stable version that has been officially supported for five years. It can therefore be used for production systems without concerns. However, compared with Docker, no hype has evolved around LXC so far.

Maybe LXD [11], which is based on LXC, will change this in the future. Linux containers are certainly the fastest way to achieve virtualization and isolation in Linux. That is probably one reason Google has been using containers intensively in projects such as lmctfy [12] and Kubernetes [13] for years.
