This looks great, Chiradeep can you share with us how the networking will
work in case of using systemvms in LXC containers, how it will communicate
with outside world and with other instances running in shared/separate LXC
containers. Will we need a loadbalancer (like nginx) for reverse proxying
and example or use case of a infra deployment. Lastly, will we have feature
of moving containers across machines and some distributed locking service
that the systemvms or agent may implement?

Regards.
