LXC

LXC is an operating system-level virtualization method for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a single control host. LXC provides operating system-level virtualization by providing a virtual environment that has its own process and network space. LXC relies on the Linux kernel cgroups functionality. LXC is similar to other OS-level virtualization technologies on Linux such as OpenVZ and Linux-VServer, as well as those on other operating systems such as FreeBSD.
