- Linux (NameSpace) Container [LXC]
Linux containers provide a flexible approach to application runtime containment on bare-metal systems without the need to fully virtualize the workload. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 provides application level containers to separate and control the application resource usage policies through cgroups and namespaces. This release includes basic management of container life-cycle by allowing creation, editing and deletion of containers using the libvirt API and the virt-manager GUI. Linux Containers are a Technology Preview.
Packages: libvirt-0.10.2-60, virt-manager-0.9.0-29
