We are ready to announce publishing of binaries [1] compiled from open
components [0]:

- Virtuozzo installation ISO image
- RPM packages (kernel and userspace)
- Source RPM packages (kernel and userspace)
- Debug RPM packages (kernel and userspace)
- EZ templates (CentOS 7 x86_64, CentOS 6 x86_64 etc)


Q: Can we use binaries or Virtuozzo distribution in production?
A: No. Virtuozzo 7 is in pre-Beta stage and we strongly recommend to avoid
any production use. We continue to develop new features and
Virtuozzo 7 may contain serious bugs.

Q: Would it be possible to upgrade from Beta 1 to Beta 2?
A: Upgrade will be supported only for OpenVZ installed on Cloud Linux
(i.e. using Virtuozzo installation image of OpenVZ installed using
yum on Cloud Linux).

Q: How often you will update Virtuozzo 7 files?
A: RPM package (and yum repository) - nightly, ISO image - weekly.

Q: I don't want to use your custom kernel or distribution.
How to use OpenVZ on my own Linux distribution?
A: We plan to make available OpenVZ for vanilla kernels and we are working on
it. If you want it - please help us with testing and contribute patches [2].
Pay attention that using OpenVZ with vanilla kernel will have some limitations
because some required kernel changes are not in upstream yet.
