+Near the beginning of last year I hit a few issues with some of my docker containers and part of my CI/CD pipeline. Around the same time I seemed to be reading more about LXC, and a few people on IRC mentioned it. I decided to take a step back from Docker and give LXC a go.
+## what the chroot
+LXC or Linux Containers, is a virtualisation method allowing the kernel to be used between multiple environments or containers. While traditionally with Docker you would run applications inside a container then network them together (web server, database, etc.) LXC gives you a "full" Linux system but unlike a virtual machine it shares the same kernel as the host.
+There are pros and cons to LXC but I don't want to get into that in this post. If you would like to know more about LXC check out the [official website](https://linuxcontainers.org). I should also point out that I have stuck with LXC and not LXD, which is a next generation container manager.
