Under Consideration

Virtuozzo is the most powerful and popular operating system container virtualization solution with best-in-class isolation and performance for service providers to sell Linux containers. The following features are needed.


Node operations:

  • add and release node to infrastructure
  • check node status
  • change root password
  • add and remove unprivileged (non-root) users
  • deploy and revoke SSH keys
  • upgrade Virtuozzo software via YUM
  • view and change nodes network configuration, usage and statistics
  • configure network classes names, rates, total rates and status
  • view container list
  • install, remove and cache operating system templates

Admin-panel container operations:

  • start, stop, restart, suspend, resume and reinstall
  • offline and online (live) migration
  • change resources on-the-fly (vCPU, memory and diskspace)
  • change limits on-the-fly (I/OPS, I/O bandwidth, I/O PRIO, network bandwidth, CPU limits and CPU units)
  • change root password
  • change hostname, add and remove IP addresses
  • backup, restore, schedule and manage backups
  • view container details and status
  • view usage statistics

Self-service portal container operations:

  • start, stop, restart and reinstall
  • local console access
  • offline management
  • backup, restore, schedule and manage backups
  • view container details and status
  • view usage statistics


Integration of this features will make Virtuozzo 7 and Solus.IO a very convenient and solid bundle.

Just curious, why would you want containers over KVM virtual machines? KVM support thin provisioning and everything else. Virtuozzo isn't really community developed either, it's done by Virtuozzo and they want you to use their control panel.

It is not about containers inside KVM VMs. Virtuozzo supports system containers on-top of bare metal side by side to VMs.
