There has been a lot of noise lately around application containers and how they make shipping your software much simpler by letting you bundle everything in a consistent way.

But there are cases where you just want a good old fully functional distro, those cases may include some random software having specific support requirements, or just offering shells or development/staging systems, ...

Now this can obviously be achieved through virtualization but running a Linux VM on a Linux host isn't the best use of your hardware, system containers are much lighter weight, faster and make things like sharing directories or physical resources trivial compared to VMs.

In this talk, I'll be presenting what LXC is capable of doing nowadays with system containers, some of the new management tools we've been working on and show just how easy it is to manage a whole network of those.
