Use Case: Appliance testing

  • Want high performance, low mem (should run on laptop w/1GB)
  • Best if it will work with stock linux kernel on host
  • lxc sounds like the official kernel paravirt solution, up and coming. It’s basically OpenVZ lite, and is built into the kernel.

Big Idea:

  • Vertical (VPS) and horizontal (per-service) containers
  • Bitfrost?
  • zeromq + node?
