Jails are FreeBSD's most legendary feature: known to be powerful, tricky to master, and cloaked in decades of dubious lore. Deploying jails calls upon every sysadmin skill you have, and more--but unleashing lightweight virtualization is so worth it.

FreeBSD Mastery: Jails cuts through the clutter to expose the inner mechanisms of jails and unleash their power in your service. You will:

  • Understand how jails achieve lightweight virtualization
  • Understand the base system's jail tools and the iocage toolkit
  • Optimally configure jail hardware
  • Manage jails from the host and from within the jail
  • Optimize disk space usage to support hundreds or thousands of jails
  • Comfortably work within the limits of jails
  • Implement fine-grained control of jail features
  • Build virtual networks
  • Deploy hierarchical jails
  • Constrain jail resource usage
  • And more
