In this tutorial, we’ll install LXD, configure our system to run LXC containers and initialize LXD on Alpine Linux. It should work on all platforms where LXD/LXC is supported (x86_64, ARM64, and more). Alpine Linux is “an independent, non-commercial, general purpose Linux distribution designed for power users who appreciate security, simplicity and resource efficiency”. It’s incredibly lightweight and can be really useful for containers and virtual machines, as both a host and as a guest.
