Hi,

maybe it's an old question, however, could not find any news about Centos 7 support.
Will OpenVZ release 3.10 kernel for RHEL 7?

Thanks
Semir

Keep an eye on http://openvz.livejournal.com for updates.

From the latest update about Virtuozzo Core:

Quote:

"As a first step, we will open the git repository of RHEL7-based Virtuozzo kernel early next year (2015, that is). This has become possible as we changed the internal development process to be more git-friendly (before that we relied on lists of patches a la quilt but with home grown set of scripts). We have worked on this kernel for quite some time already, initially porting our patchset to kernel 3.6, then rebasing it to RHEL7 beta, then final RHEL7. While it is still in development, we will publish it so anyone can follow the development process."


So I suspect there will be a beta out in the next few months, probably be a little while before a stable release is out though. Keep in mind, vzctl works with 3.10 without the vzkernel but with some limitations: http://openvz.org/Vzctl_for_upstream_kernel#Limitations. Depends on your use case whether you can use it on an upstream or base RHEL kernel or whether you want to wait until they have an official vzkernel for 3.10.

Hi,

thank you, I mostly found these.

"a beta out in the next few months,"
Let's hope!

"Keep in mind, vzctl works with 3.10 without the vzkernel but with some limitations:"
Yep, it lacks all the feature needed for a hosting Smile


Thanks,
Semir

Yes, definitely not secure to offer containers to end users without the vzkernel features. If you want to look at the release history, the stable vzkernel 2.6.32 was released 10 months after RHEL6. It's only been about 7 months since RHEL7 was released.
