Snappy Ubuntu Core is a new rendition of Ubuntu with transactional updates

Snappy Ubuntu Core is a new rendition of Ubuntu with transactional updates – a minimal server image with the same libraries as today’s Ubuntu, but applications are provided through a simpler mechanism. The snappy approach is faster, more reliable, and lets us provide stronger security guarantees for apps and users — that’s why we call them “snappy” applications.

Ubuntu Snappy supports Canonical’s AppArmor kernel security system for delivering human-friendly security. This means snappy let’s you isolate applications from one another completely. Snappy is easily extensible with frameworks like Docker – after adding a framework to your Snappy you can run apps on it.
