I have no qualms with you having switched from OpenVZ to LXC... but just to clarify, OpenVZ Legacy does indeed exist, gets regular updates, and will be supported until Nov. 2019 as seen here:


While it is true that the EL6-based OpenVZ kernel branch is no longer the focus of their future development (Virtuozzo 7 is obviously), they are supporting it and will continue to.
