One benefit Linux containers provide is the ability to quick spin up a number of containers. But from what are these containers based? LXD snapshots allow us to take point-in-time images of our containers and any work performed on these containers. In this lab, we take a preconfigured nginx-based web container and clone it to create the basis of a small web cluster.

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.
