For security and ease of admin, I want to install LXD on my cloud server either powered by XEN or KVM. How do I install LXD on Ubuntu Linux server powered by KVM virtualization technology? You can implement the Linux container (LXD/LXC) to partition a your cloud server. Both cloud server, its files, and resources are only given the access to the right services such as Apache, Nginx, MySQL, Proxy, Memcached and so on. Canonical’s LXD is a pure-container hypervisor that runs unmodified Linux operating systems and applications with VM-style operations at incredible speed and density.
