[PVE-User] OpenVZ and Shared Storage

Hi Andrew,

OpenVZ does not support multiple storage (some NFS is working). Kir (OpenVZ project lead) said that multiple storages is not expected to be supported from OpenVZ team in the near future as their customers does not request it (meaning virtuozzo customers).

So in principle it is possible to implement but if our patches does not go into the main OpenVZ tree it makes no sense for us going this way without them. I wrote some about this in the interview given to Scott (montanalinux).

The next round will start as soon as it's clear what kernel is used in RHEL6. 2.6.31, 2.6.32? who knows.
The openvz team will start to support this kernel but due to my knowledge they do not even started yet, so it will take time.

But anyway, Proxmox VE will support container virtualization now and in future as we think this is the right way. So you can expect multiple storage for containers in the future.

I am quite open for discussion here and I am looking forward to get comments for other users about this.

Best Regards,

Martin Maurer
