Infographic: LXD Machine Containers from Ubuntu Linux

LXD can be used on its own if you just want to deploy traditional workload apps, or in combination with the Docker Linux container engine by integrating Docker containers into LXD containers. We remind those of you who are not in the loop, that the LXD containers have been designed by Canonical to look and act like any other virtual machine. However, they are more lightweight, low on resources, and are highly scalable.
