Using OpenVZ Linux containers
Kir Kolyshkin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Get your hands dirty with OpenVZ containers technology! Learn how to install OpenVZ (kernel and tools), create (and destroy) different containers. Get to know OpenVZ resource management, including the beancounters, disk quota, CPU weights and limits, and I/O priorities. Try the live migration feature using vzmigrate utility. [If time permits] create your own OpenVZ virtual appliance (known as 'template' using OpenVZ slang).
You will learn how OpenVZ is different from other solutions, how to install and start using OpenVZ, the resource management mechanisms and how to use them, how to backup, restore, and live migrate containers, and how to create your own OpenVZ virtual appliances (also known as templates)
Target audience: Linux system administrators; anybody interested in virtualization; anybody currently using Xen or KVM to run Linux on Linux. Requirements: a working Linux system on your notebook (or inside a VM), preferrably RHEL/CentOS/Fedora/Ubuntu/Debian/Gentoo (anything else will work, too), or a desire and a free disk partition to install one.
