1. About VzLinux

VzLinux 8 is a 1:1 clone of Redhat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8. It is free to download, use, and distribute.

The purpose of VzLinux is to assist organizations and their clients with an easy path to upgrade or move the existing estate from CentOS, which has been announced to have a reduced lifecycle.


Compared to CentOS 8, VzLinux 8 uses iptables instead of nftables by default, even though both sets of tools are provided.
