Is anyone interested in the LXC visualization? If so have you used it before or would you just like to?

If I offered a few beta accounts / free trails would anyone want one?

    I'm in, tried to play around with lxc before. Now i have a folder with old /proc and /dev stuff lying around that i can't delete.

    I think lxc would be very interesting since it doesn't need a patched kernel.

    So, i'd take one :)

    will this replace OVZ in the future?

    Twitter Bootstrap Themes for your software projects. I recommend Prometeus and Catalyst Host

    Comments expressed are solely my own opinion and not of that of the companies, unless stated.

  • I had a quick look at it, and it seems comparable to OpenVZ/vServer. Are there any advantages to using LXC over OpenVZ?

  • @ElliotJ I heard it was more isolated

    Thanked by 1Jar
  • I'd also like to try one out for sure.

    Yes I would like to try one. I looked at LXC a couple years ago, but it wasn't ready for prime time.

    I do not know any about it, but I would like to have a try.

  • @jcaleb said: will this replace OVZ in the future?

    yes and no. yes if many developer start to develop it and make it compatible/available in all well-known vps control panel.

    no, as the above statement, it's pretty hard to replace OVZ. perhaps next 5 years? :P

    Yes! I'm with Carstensz Pyramid Server Now stop asking me please :D

    Might take a little more than a control panel...

  • LXC won't catch on (at least in the hosting biz) until they fix all the security issues.

    Ah, so all the others are free of security holes... M

    OpenVZ is immune to chroot escape methods, LXC is prone to pretty much all of them.
