Installing LXC ( Linux Containers ) With LXC Web Pannel In Ubuntu

What is LXC

Linux Containers (LXC) are lightweight virtualization technology and provide a free software virtualization system for computers running GNU/Linux, This is accomplished through kernel level isolation, It allows one to run multiple virtual units (containers) simultaneously on the same host.
  • manage resources using PCG ( process control groups ) implemented via cgroup filesystem
  • Resource isolation via new flags to the clone(2) system call (capable of create several types of new namespace for things like PIDs and network routing)
  • Several additional isolation mechanisms (such as the “-o newinstance” flag to the devpts filesystem).
The LXC package combines these Linux kernel mechanisms to provide a userspace container object, a lightweight virtual system with full resource isolation and resource control for an application or a system.
