In a production environment, we don't want to put all of our containers on a single LXD host. After all, what happens should that host fail? Instead, we generally want to work with a LXD cluster, multiple LXD servers that share a distributed database and allow for redundancy and some fault tolerance. In this hands-on lab, we set up a small LXD cluster of three hosts.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
