Funtoo Linux[edit]


Funtoo Linux uses OpenVZ for its entire compute infrastructure, and Gentoo and Funtoo creator Daniel Robbins is a long-term fan of OpenVZ. Funtoo Linux currently has two OpenVZ-related initiatives -- one is the Funtoo Compute Initiative, which is a fully maintained, open and documented from-bare-metal deployment of OpenVZ using Funtoo Linux, based on Funtoo's own internal infrastructure. The second is Funtoo Containers, where OpenVZ is used to empower the Funtoo community to do cool things with Funtoo Linux.

Regarding OpenVZ, Daniel Robbins says:

OpenVZ has always delivered on the promise of true production-ready container technology. The OpenVZ team has wisely focused its efforts on delivering a true solution that can be relied upon for internal clouds, high performance computing, hosting, and empowering developers to do cool things. I use OpenVZ because it works, and works well, and the OpenVZ team continues to improve the technology in smart ways.

Giving each student a system they can be "root" of provides them with valuable hands-on experience. OpenVZ works very well in educational environments.
