Linux containers are implementations of operating system-level virtualization for the Linux operating system. Several implementations exist, all based on the virtualization, isolation, and resource management mechanisms provided by the Linux kernel, notably Linux namespaces and cgroups.[1] These include:

  • Docker, first released on 13 March 2013; 8 years ago (2013-03-13)
  • Linux-VServer
  • lmctfy, initially developed by Google and released on 13 October 2013; 7 years ago (2013-10-13) and not actively developed since 2015.
  • LXC (Linux Containers), first released on August 6, 2008; 13 years ago (2008-08-06)[2]
  • LXD, an alternative wrapper around LXC developed by Canonical[3]
  • OpenVZ
  • Rkt[4] (archived[5]), originally developed by CoreOS inc. and acquired[6] by Red Hat inc.
  • Singularity
  • systemd-nspawn[7]
  • Podman[8]
  • Charliecloud, a set of container tools used on HPC systems[9]
  • Kata Containers MicroVM Platform [10]
  • Bottlerocket is a Linux-based open-source operating system that is purpose-built by Amazon Web Services for running containers on virtual machines or bare metal hosts[11]
