Debian and its clones "This guide is written during an install of a Supermicro machine with 2 dual-core opterons (64-bit), 2 identical disks (for RAID) and a load of memory. Why OpenVZ and not XEN or the recent KVM kernel module? Well, XEN is not very stable for 64-bit architectures (yet), and it comes with quite a bit of overhead (every VM runs its own kernel) due to its complexity. KVM is very simple but restricts you to run a kernel as one process, so the VM cannot benefit from multi core systems."

Before going to far down this path, be aware that at least Virtuozzo (the commercial version of OpenVZ) has problems when you use multiple network interfaces inside the VPS's... Since discovering that we've had to remove it from all of our Linux systems.
