We are using openvz at work, and is a excellent alternative to full
blown virtualization.


we have install now under centos4 and centos5 for example for dev groups
that have dedicated environments. openvz will provide tools and kernels
for both ones. The only "problem" that have is not full support for x86_64
system. but we have solved this problem (thanks to the openvz wiki) and
have servers with centos4 and centos5 VE (virtual environments).

we are prefering openvz over xen in centos5 install in almost all the
installs. The only diference is when we have a need to full virt (like running
rh7/rh8 inside a xen domain)
