I guess an important topic when thinking of server is virtualization and
contextualization both for flexibility and security.

I believe we can greatly improve our VM server solution (my biggest wish
at the moment is for some kind of ACLs on VMs running in libvirt) and
prepare to have a rocking solution for the next LTS.

Contextualization is also something I use everyday as the current policy
at my employer is to have a full container per service. That means that
I currently administer a few hundreds VZ containers just for our
internal infrastructure (a few thousands if including customers).

Containers offer a lot of flexibility at a very low cost and can be used
to greatly improve everyone's security even on the desktop.
That's really something I believe we should focus more on and I know
there's an existing interest from both the Server and Security team.
We also have the chance to have Daniel Lezcano (upstream for LXC) at UDS
this time.
