When is better to use chroot than UML

alvaro.arenas's picture

I am interested to know when would actually be worth to use uml than chroot in the case of running a single service. For example, I would like to run an IRC or a web server. Which approach would be better when you consider separately one of this factors:

-Configuration effort.
-Resources used (RAM, Hard Disk)
-Security

Any comment would be truly appreciated.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
