Containers Live Migration

Container-type virtualization is an ability to run multiple isolated sets of processes, known as containers, under a single kernel instance. Having such an isolation opens the possibility to save the complete state of (in other words, to checkpoint) a container and later to restart it. Checkpoint itself is used for live migration, in particular for implementing highavailability solutions. In this paper, we present the checkpoint and restart and live migration feature for containers as implemented in OpenVZ

Key Words
virtualization, operating system, checkpoint, restart, migration
