Mark Shuttleworth Introduces Fan Overlay Network System in Ubuntu Linux

Fan overlay network for container addresses is a new innovation from Canonical that promises to deliver the most scalable and fastest address expansion mechanism in the container world by enabling cloud users to grow the number of LXD and Docker containers that can be addressed in just one cloud environment.
