Is Virtuozzo/OpenVZ deprecation for hosts or containers?

Post by yorodriguez »

I just saw in configserver's blog the following notice:
We are deprecating support for Virtuozzo/OpenVZ servers. Future releases will not take into consideration those platforms which have become onerous to support. The software application may continue to work but support and functionality is no longer guaranteed
Is this about Virtuozzo/OpenVZ hosts or containers?

It will still keep working. It just may need changes to the default installation configuration on new servers.

Yes, but when csf stops working will be a huge problem for me. I need prevent service loss, so I must find out a solution instead wait for it to fail.

Now that OpenVZ is not in your client base, could you please tell me if you know any software that supports OpenVZ as an alternative to csf?

Not particularly, but I recommend looking at Linux KVM. Free virtualisation that works really well and will have/has no issue running CSF firewall (I use it myself as it's included in most linux distro's).
