VzLinux is the latest of the growing numbers of Red Hat Enterprise Linux clones and another potential alternative for those thinking to migrate away from the abandoned CentOS 8 distribution. It is a completely free and open-source product developed by Swiss-based Virtuozzo International GmbH and it compliments its range of specialist commercial solutions based on VzLinux. Yesterday, the company announced the release of VzLinux 8.3 to the general public: “Virtuozzo, a global leader in high-efficiency virtualization and hyperconverged software solutions, today released its latest VzLinux operating system (VzLinux 8) to the general public. VzLinux - an enterprise distribution - has been used by Virtuozzo as a base OS for the company’s OpenVz virtualization solution and other commercial products as well as a guest OS for more than 20 years. Web hosting service providers and other end customers deploying the technology gain the immediate benefits of a stable, long-term supported Linux distro maintained by the open-source community. VzLinux 8 is a free, multi-purpose distro optimized to run in containers, virtual machines or on bare-metal servers.” Here is the full press release. Download: vzlinux-iso-8.3-7.iso (4,327MB, pkglist), vzlinux-iso-min-8.3-53.iso (1,577MB).
