LinuX Containers (LXC) provide lightweight virtualization that lets you isolate processes and resources without the need to provide instruction interpretation mechanisms and other complexities of full virtualization.

Ubuntu ships with the latest version of LXC and is very active in the upstream development of LXC and the containers capabilities in the kernel.

The best documentation available at the moment for LXC can be found in the Server Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/serverguide/lxc.html

A good getting started guide can be found at: https://www.stgraber.org/2012/05/04/lxc-in-ubuntu-12-04-lts/
