@Flockport Launches Ready to Deploy #containers of Popular Apps Based on LXC
Mumbai based startup Flockport today announced the launch of Flockport.com, the first Linux container (LXC) sharing website that will offer users popular web applications in portable containers that can be deployed in seconds.

Flockport containers give users cloud like flexibility of application instances that can be deployed on demand. Flockport.com will let users and developers download and share LXC containers.

Flockport will also provide a Flockport Utility that will set up LXC for users (currently Debian only) and let users view and download Flockport containers directly to their systems.

Linux containers is a fast maturing technology that provides all the benefits of virtualization but without the performance penalty.

Containers are portable and can be cloned, backed up, launched and deployed across environments, opening a world of flexibility and scalability for application users, developers and enterprises

Commenting on the launch, Flockport founder Indrajit Banerjee said, “We are extremely excited about the launch of Flockport.com. Linux containers are a flexible and highly efficient platform for distributing and deploying web applications. Flockport wants to make containers accessible to a much wider audience and articulate and provide a broader use of containers as lightweight, portable and extremely fast alternative to virtualization”

Linux containers unlike preceding container technology is natively supported in the Linux kernel, paving the way for widespread adoption. There is a significant information gap on LXC in the marketplace that Flockport will address.

Flockport.com is a free service. Flockport will shortly let users deploy Flockport containers directly to the cloud, and help public cloud providers broaden their market base by letting customers deploy complex applications in seconds.
