Docker gets some competition with new Joyent, Canonical containers

Joab Jackson | Nov. 7, 2014
Joyent's collection of container technologies could be used as the basis for running large-scale, big-data analysis jobs, and Canonical's new container comes with additional safety measures for mission-critical workloads, according to each company.

"It's designed with security in mind, first and foremost," said Dustin Kirkland, Canonical product manager, in a video presentation on the technology.

Like Docker, LXD is based on the LXC (Linux Containers) core virtualization technology. Unlike Docker, LXD will only run on Linux servers. It also features the ability to migrate running containers between one node and another with no downtime, according to Canonical.
