Virtuozzo VzLinux 8.4 Now Available
Introducing Production Ready VzLinux 8.4
The Virtuozzo team is always hard at work making sure that we release a new version and bug fixes that coincide with the updates provided by RHEL 8.4.
On the 11th of June we released VzLinux 8.4, a production ready, stable release for you – our loyal supporters – to run your different workloads on.
We have received some very cool feedback and are glad that you all love what we are doing.
Thanks for noticing that we are fixing bugs so quickly (24 hours) and that you think VzLinux is stable and enterprise ready. To those who have asked if we will be following a similar path as CentOS, shifting its focus to Stream, the answer is: there are no plans for us to go this route, VzLinux will remain free to download, use and distribute.
You can read more about this release, installing and upgrading by checking out our Release notes.
You can also view our recent virtual Masterclass – VzLinux: A Perfect Replacement for CentOS on-demand here.
- A tool to upgrade CentOS 7 directly to VzLinux 8, available at: https://github.com/vzlinux/vzupgrade

- The nmstate network API for hosts is fully supported in version 8.4.
- Ansible modules are available for automated management of role-based access control (RBAC) in Identity Management (IdM), an Ansible role for backing up and restoring IdM servers, and an Ansible module for location management.
- Newer module streams are now available: Python 3.9, SWIG 4.0, Subversion 1.14, Redis 6, PostgreSQL 13, MariaDB 10.5.
- Compilers have been updated: GCC Toolset 10, LLVM Toolset 11.0.0, Rust Toolset 1.49.0, Go Toolset 1.15.7.
- If subscription-manager was installed, any dnf command could produce warnings about the system not being registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. Now subscription-manager is no longer a dependency of a number of packages, and its plugins are disabled by default. (VZL-94)
