Overall Satisfaction with OpenVZ

We are using OpenVZ for our testing and development purposes. We have several websites that run on OpenVZ containers. It is also used bt our development teams for their proof-of-concept and testing projects.
  • It is container-based virtualization
  • It is not resource-heavy
  • It is better then KVM
  • Since it is a container-based solution, you can't run any other OS, except for Linux
  • It is not so popular as Docker, but it's not that bad
  • It's free, so you can try it and figure out if it suited for your needs
  • Docker
Kubernetes and Docker are de-facto standards today, but I think that OpenVZ and Proxmox are better solutions

Do you think OpenVZ delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with OpenVZ's feature set?


Did OpenVZ live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of OpenVZ go as expected?


Would you buy OpenVZ again?


If you are considering to use Docker and Kubernetes then you can give a try to OpenVZ and Proxmox. It is a good alternative and it is as good as Docker and Kubernetes
