What OS is the VM running?  Just out of curiosity, is there any difference in shutdown time if it is initiated from with the VM vs. prlctl?

I think the backup feature is going to be a Virtuozzo 7-only (aka pay) feature per this comparison chart on the wiki:


That doesn't mean you can't backup containers and VM with various methods, just that it won't be integrated solution in OpenVZ.  That's my guess anyway.  I've been backing up containers with OpenVZ Legacy using a ploop-based snapshot method and can report that it is not difficult... just slightly different in VZ7 for containers and VMs.

I'm not familiar with that one so no comment.
