What’s a Type-C Hypervisor?

LXD container hypervisor type-c

Sure, you know what an hypervisor is, and you’re familiar with the most common types – VirtualBox, KVM, Xen and VMWare.

But did you know that there are different types of hypervisors?

Yep, there are Type-1 and Type-2 hypervisors. And those are the original types. Recently, relatively speaking, the folks at Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, defined a new type that they called Type-C hypervisors. Their implementation of that type of hypervisor is LXD (see What’s LXD?).

In this video, recorded at a recent ContainerSummit, Dustin Kirkland, Ubuntu Product Manager at Canonical, gives a good introduction of hypervisors. It’s a good video to watch if you want to know more about hypervisors and LXD. It’s about 35 minutes long, but the first 15 minutes should give you more than enough information, if you don’t have time to watch the whole thing.
