As you might know already, since 028stab045 kernel from RHEL5 branch we 
support Xen architecture. That basically means one can run OpenVZ kernel 
on top of Xen hypervisor, in both DomU and Dom0.

My quick question/request is: if you are using it (or want to), please 
let me know.


Regards,
  Kir.

That sounds interesting - the question is if I can still control all
recources (cpuunits, memory)?

I am also interested in a KVM/OpenVZ combination - is that feasable?

It's still the same, it's just you have Xen and OpenVZ at the same time, 
so you can have Xen domains as well as OpenVZ VEs (with OpenVZ itself 
being in one of Xen domains). Hope you get the picture

To my mind, KVM is still not mature enough for that. Having said that, 
in theory I see nothing against that -- OpenVZ can definitely coexist 
with KVM as well as it does now with Xen.

We are going to use OpenVZ in DomU. Now we use OpenVZ on Debian (with
the kernels from download.openvz.org/debian) and ALTLinux.

By the way, why don't you put some info about your Debian kernel repo
on http://openvz.org/download/kernel/ ? As far as I see, it's
maintained by the team. Also, it would be quite useful to have
openvz-on-xen enabled Debian kernels officially supported.

Thanks!
