The conversion utility supports the smooth conversion of CentOS 8 bare metal servers, virtual machines, and containers to effectively manage risks while minimizing negative business impact. For containers, Virtuozzo also provides advanced features, including conversion rehearsal, recovery snapshot creation, and a large number of conversions without supervision. The option to convert from CentOS 7 will be provided in a future update.
It is worth noting that VzLinux is a 1:1 binary compatible derivative of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (especially RHEL 8).
Virtuozzo senior product manager Maik Broemme said: “As the CentOS project ends later this year, the enterprise Linux distribution market is shifting from a Linux server dominated by CentOS to elsewhere. The resulting market gap requires a reliable, long-term solution. This is why we chose to release VzLinux publicly. Our goal is to provide the industry with a viable, free, and smooth transitional alternative product.”
Virtuozzo has a long history of sponsoring and supporting well-known open source projects such as OpenVZ, KVM, Docker, OpenStack, and CRIU. The company’s confidence in its VzLinux distribution has led to the conversion of more than 200 CentOS servers within it, ensuring that Virtuozzo’s infrastructure will continue to be reliable in the future after CentOS ends in December 2021.
