comment Use dd to backup disk image within an OpenVZ container
@Gilles Cool! I use cat more often than dd, e.g. zeroing out virtual HDDs. But dd still works well when creating swap files;-)

comment Use dd to backup disk image within an OpenVZ container
@frostschutz I am aware of the fact. I am just testing the if it works. Because later on I may need to migrate to a different VPS provider (I'll do traditional cold tar backups and do a dd). LVM or Btrfs snapshots work better for backups if I host the containers myself;-)

comment btrfs performance
You should take a look at Phoronix's performance test results. Also use their test suite to conduct the test.
