Bastille helps you quickly create and manage FreeBSD Jails.
Jails are extremely lightweight containers that provide a full-featured UNIX-like operating system inside. These containers can be used for software development, rapid testing, and secure production Internet services.
Bastille provides an interface to create, manage and destroy these secure virtualized environments.
