How To Do Live Migration Of OpenVZ Containers
This guide explains how you can do a live migration of an OpenVZ container from one OpenVZ host to the other. Both OpenVZ hosts are running on Debian Lenny in this article, but the live migration does not differ on other distributions.
Managing OpenVZ With The WebVZ Control Panel On Debian Lenny
This guide explains how you can install WebVZ on a Debian Lenny OpenVZ host. WebVZ is a light web-based control panel for OpenVZ. It has its own web server (Webrick) and database engine (SQLITE 3).
Installing And Using OpenVZ On Debian Lenny (AMD64)
In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a Debian Lenny server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.
KVM & OpenVZ Virtualization And Cloud Computing With Proxmox VE
Proxmox VE (virtual environment) is a distribution based on Debian Etch (x86_64); it provides an OpenSource virtualization platform for running virtual machines (OpenVZ and KVM) and comes with a powerful, web-based control panel (it includes a web-based graphical console that you can use to connect to the virtual machines). With Proxmox VE, you can even create a cluster of virtualization hosts and create/control virtual machines on remote hosts from the control panel. Proxmox VE also supports live migration of virtual machines from one host to the other. This guide shows how you can use Proxmox VE to control KVM and OpenVZ virtual machines and how to create a small computing cloud with it.
Managing OpenVZ With HyperVM On CentOS 5.2
HyperVM is a multi-platform, multi-tiered, multi-server, multi-virtualization web based application that will allow you to create and manage different virtual machines each based on different technologies across machines and platforms. Currently it supports OpenVZ and Xen virtualization and is available for RHEL 4/5 as well as CentOS 4 and CentOS 5. This tutorial shows how to install it on a CentOS 5.2 server to control OpenVZ containers. I will also explain how to manage OpenVZ containers with HyperVM on a remote CentOS 5.2 server ("slave").
Splitting Resources Evenly Between OpenVZ VMs With vzsplit
This short guide shows how you can split your OpenVZ host resources evenly between multiple virtual machines with the help of vzsplit. vzsplit generates a sample container configuration file with a certain set of system resource control parameters that you can then apply to your virtual machines.
How To Convert Physical Systems And Xen VMs Into OpenVZ Containers (Debian Etch)
This guide explains how you can convert physical systems (running Debian Etch) or Xen domUs (also running Debian Etch) into an OpenVZ container. This procedure should also work for converting VMware VMs, VirtualBox VMs, or KVM VMs into OpenVZ containers, but I haven't tried this. It should work for other Linux distributions as well, with minor modifications (for example, the network configuration is not located in /etc/network/interfaces if you're not on Debian/Ubuntu).
Managing OpenVZ With The Vtonf Control Panel On CentOS 5.2
Vtonf is a free web-based control panel (released under the GPL license) for managing virtual private servers (VPS) based on OpenVZ. It makes it very easy to create and manage OpenVZ VMs even for people with little technical knowledge. Right now, Vtonf is available only for RedHat, Fedora, and CentOS (support for Debian is planned), therefore I describe its installation and usage on a CentOS 5.2 server.
Clone/Back Up/Restore OpenVZ VMs With vzdump
vzdump is a backup and restore utility for OpenVZ VMs. This tutorial shows how you can use it to clone/back up/restore virtual machines with vzdump.
Installing And Using OpenVZ On Ubuntu 8.10
In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare an Ubuntu 8.10 server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.
