A container (otherwise known as CT, Virtual Environment (VE), Virtual Private Server (VPS) etc.) is one of the main concepts of OpenVZ.
Container is an isolated entity which performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server. Container can be rebooted independently and have root access, users/groups, IP address(es), memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.
OpenVZ allows to have multiple CTs (as many as several hundreds) on a single Hardware Node.
|Note: in this Wiki, terms VE and container are used interchangeably. For new articles, container is the preferred term.|
If you want to manage your container, you must use its identifer : a ConTainer's IDentifer (CTID).
Please note that a quota ID is not always the same as a CTID
