I need to set up a new server and I need to know if I should jump into OpenVZ 7 or stick with OpenVZ 6 for now.

Is anyone happily running OpenVZ 7 in production with moderate loads? Say maybe 20 containers. Not KVM VM's but containers.

Stability is important and OpenVZ 6 has been extremely stable for us. However, bug/security updates end in less than 2 years. Alternatives are KVM, which is not nearly as efficient on hardware, and LXD which does not appear ready yet. LXC is not suitable for hosting for security reasons, based on what I have read, so not even a consideration.

It seems to be. At the end of 2017, our datacentre started using RAID controllers and motherboards with EFI that openvz kernels apparently couldn't support, so we had no choice but to use Virtuozzo Linux 7.

We've now migrated at least 40 containers from OpenVZ 6 to OpenVZ 7 host nodes, converting from SimFS to ploop in the process. It has worked out quite well with stable performance on nodes with up to 24 containers so far.
