Web hosting companies and other end users that deploy the technology benefit immediately from a stable, long-term supported Linux distribution maintained by the open-source community. VzLinux 8 is a free, multi-purpose software designed to run in containers, virtual machines, or on bare-metal servers. It is intended to support I/O-heavy, enterprise-level applications and workloads.
