VIRTUALIZATION --
Since last year Canonical has been developing the new LXD hypervisor. As implied by the name, LXD is derived from the success of LXC.

LXD is usable with Ubuntu 15.04 albeit not many have yet fully experimented with this new technology from Canonical given its early state. The LXD Linux container hypervisor allows for rapid provisioning, very fast performance, a REST API, and other functionality. If you're wishing to learn more about LXD, this week at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver was a talk about LXD vs. KVM for Linux hypervisors.

For your convenience, this LXD vs. KVM talk by Canonical is embedded below. The session was led by James Page of Canonical.
