LXC Virtualisation

A less-challenging virtulisation with low provisioning costs

Technology LXC is so-called lightweight virtualisation, i.e. virtualisation at OS level. It creates so-called containers on which various Linux operating systems can run.

LXC Virtualisation Features

Lower provisioning costs

Unlike full virtualization, LXC has low overhead, so that it doesn't take as much of the physical server's hardware performance. As a result, VPS with LXC is much cheaper than virtual servers with full virtualization.

Various linux distributions

You run various distributions of Linux operating systems on the LXC. In Master we offer Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. This allows you to use all the packages and software that are associated with the distribution.

Isolated environment

The virtualised server using LXC has its own dedicated memory, CPU and RAM, and is thus isolated from VPS of other customers. A possible problem with one VPS will not affect other customers.

Limited options of LXC virtualisation

Possibilities of VPS virtualized using LXC technology  are limited. For example, you do not run Docker on such virtual servers; hence it is especially suitable for simple projects, such as websites, smaller e-shops or running simpler applications.
