OpenVZ releases patches for Linux kernel 2.6.20

The new Linux kernel 2.6.20, already featuring the new KVM virtualization module, can now count also on OpenVZ.

New patches include:

  • Support for read-only bind mounts, which allows a read-only view into a read-write file system
  • Namespaces technology, resulting from on-going work on Linux kernel containers virtualization
  • A new I/O prioritization feature that makes it possible to set priorities for each virtual environment so that some can be set as high priority for disk access, and others as lower priority
