LXD leverages the Linux Container (LXC) system to create light, effective system containers. However, before we begin to use LXC/LXD, we need to ensure we have it properly installed, initialized, and otherwise configured. In this lab, we will install LXD 3.0 Stable on Ubuntu 18.04 and ensure it's up and running.

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.
