i worry that the great new development will obscure my understanding of what’s underneath. running through a daemon could very well do that. and i worry a lot about something that is a management layer won’t let me automate things as easily because it is also doing automation which can end up conflicting with each other. i believe that sometimes it could be best to use lxd and sometimes lxc and sometimes even lower.
i am reading more about cgroups and namespaces. and it looks like i may not need all namespaces to be isolated even for system type containers. but i need to read on to be sure. and there is the hint that i might not even need lxc. maybe a document that explains what all lxc does (then one like it for lxd) would be good reading. but, i don’t want a sales brochure; i don’t want someone trying to tell me how great it is. it should be telling me what it is and let me figure out how great it is.
i have found a bunch of packages for lxd, as well. can you tell me what i need to actually install … what is essential and what is optional … and what i should avoid. but i will still want such a list of lxc packages, as well, before proceeding.
since i have been told this works fine in AWS EC2 instances, i will be trying things there, before here. and i can launch 2 instances.
