'''OpenVZ''' is a container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated Linux containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server; a container can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.
Our kernel developers [ work hard] to merge containers functionality into the upstream Linux kernel, making OpenVZ team the biggest contributor to Linux Containers (LXC) kernel, with features such as PID and network namespaces, memory controller, checkpoint-restore and much more.
OpenVZ is free open source software, available under GNU GPL.
OpenVZ is the basis of [[Virtuozzo]], a virtualization solution offered by Odin. Virtuozzo is optimized for hosters and offers hypervisor (VMs in addition to containers), [[Virtuozzo_Storage|distributed cloud storage]], dedicated support, management tools, and easy installation.
