Hi,

I want implement server virtualization but i need to know the hardware
requirements to install OpenVZ.

Hard Disc space, RAM memory, processor speed, etc. so all Operating Systems
installed run properly.

Thanks by your help,

Atte.

I don't think that there are hard requirements. I successfully tested 
OpenVZ with several VPSs on a system with 1 GB of RAM and a 160 GB hard 
drive.

The short version:

a) If your hardware is compatible with the kernel (think Fedora or 
RedHat) then it's compatible with the OpenVZ kernel. The performance is 
not surprising at all: DDR2 RAM is faster than DDR, a Athlon X2 4000+ is 
faster than a Pentium-4, RAID rocks, and so on.

b) Just plan for capacity, and remember that too much is always better
than not enough. An extra GB of RAM, enough disk for the host OS plus 
some to spare, and you'll be A-OK.

It all depends on how many virtual environments you want and want you
want to run in them.  

For a demonstration I setup a laptop running OpenVZ.  It's a 333MHz
Pentium II, 128MB RAM, and a 6 GB hard drive.  I have 3 VEs running.  It
works fine.
