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 :)

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

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

  • cnzhhicnzhhi Member

    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.

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