Introduction to BastilleBSD
What are “containers”?
Chroot, Jails, containers, zones, LXC, Docker
I use FreeBSD on my home network to serve services like email, git, fileserver, etc. For some other services, I use k3s with GNU/Linux application containers.
The FreeBSD services run as Jails. For those who aren’t familiar with FreeBSD Jails. Jails started the whole concept of “containers”.
If you want to know more about the history of FreeBSD Jails, Solaris zones and containers on Un!x systems in general and the challenges to run containers securely I recommend the video;
“Papers We Love: Jails and Solaris Zones by Bryan Cantrill”
Sun took containers to the next level with Solaris zones , allowing a fine-grade CPU and memory allocation.
