I have a dedicated server with 2 TB disk space, 16 GB memory. I need to virtualize it to 3 different containers (Public, private and DEV). I have been evaluating Open VZ

But it caused disk quota problems.

I appreciate some recommendations that allows me to virtualize the server and use the same kernel.

Thank you so much. I am trying this out now. Looks very promising and exactly what I needed. – digitup May 6 '13 at 13:22
Thank you once again. I have a follow up question: Where can I create websites folders such as /var/www or /home/xxxx in the new container. I have LAMP installed in the main kernel, do I still need to install LAMP in the created container ? – digitup May 6 '13 at 13:33
how can I access the new container via SSH ? – digitup May 6 '13 at 13:38
sudo lxc-console -n name-of-container -t 1 , default userid/password is ubuntu – Qasim May 6 '13 at 13:39
