Like a Bullet Train: Making LXD's Migration Fast - Tycho Andersen, Canonical

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the release of LXD 2.0 and Ubuntu 16.04, live migration of Linux Containers is now available for the first time in any long term supported release of a container platform. The technology is still very young, but work is ongoing to make it faster, e.g. by using iterative transfer of memory via dirty page tracking to minimize the downtime of the container. In this talk, I'll cover what the future of this work is, as well as what has already been done using filesystem primitives for clever filesystems (ZFS, btrfs) which support some sort of more intelligent filesystem blob transport.

As a bonus, I'll also give an update on the supported featureset for live migration relative to my past LinuxCon and ContainerCon talks on the topic.
