CVPS stuck on OpenVZ 6 - Best Alternatives for OpenVZ 7 / Debian 10 support
A bunch of our VMs that started on Debian 7 at Chicago VPS, are now frozen on Debian 9 due to ancient kernel support; Two main issues now that we have been working around, but are now stuck at.
We have moved to Debian 10 everywhere except this cluster of OpenVZ servers which have run into two critical issues related to the ancient kernels
After a few months of back and forth, Ross there has confirmed in YLB-432760 no plans to upgrade; After a bit of research of our own into the issues, we would assume there is probably no longer any upstream support from Virtuozzo, since the current plaform reached EOL a while ago it would seem.
1) libc6 no longer warns about unsupported kernels, but now fails to upgrade
2) xattrs on cgroupfs, preventing databases like recent Postgres-12 from starting
So we are being forced to move all our OpenVZ away from ChicagoVPS which met our needs on price/performance up until now.
I know RamNode has OpenVZ 7, but looking for tips and experience from other providers that are staying uptodate with kernel security as we are looking to diversify a bit with this next migration.
We are looking for providers willing to take on the work of maintaining hypervisors against CVEs, and providing maintenance or migration paths to current hypervisors for OpenVZ containers.
