    Overview

    LXD is a container "hypervisor" and a new user experience for LXC. Specifically, it's made of three components: A system-wide daemon (lxd) A command line client (lxc) An OpenStack Nova plugin (nova-compute-lxd) The daemon exports a REST API both locally and if enabled, over the network. The command line tool is designed to be a very simple, yet very powerful tool to manage all your containers. It can handle connect to multiple container hosts and easily give you an overview of all the containers on your network, let you create some more where you want them and even move them around while they're running. The OpenStack plugin then allows you to use your lxd hosts as compute nodes, running workloads on containers rather than virtual machines. The LXD project was founded and is currently led by Canonical Ltd and Ubuntu with contributions from a range of other companies and individual contributors.

    Docker provides an integrated technology suite that enables development and IT operations teams to build, ship, and run distributed applications anywhere. Docker allows you to package an application with all of its dependencies into a standardized unit for software development. Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.
