We have been providing OpenVZ containers(VEs) for developers working on some projects - this was done from a purely economical perspective. I have been asked to setup a Docker-like system within the OpenVZ containers for a continous integration solution. Unfortunately, OpenVZ containers cannot be used to run Docker.

Are there any alternative technologies/solutions for setting this up?


The latest kernel update 2.6.32 042stab105.14 now supports Docker inside OpenVZ containers.


It is possible in theory to manage Parallels containers with Docker using libct library - https://github.com/xemul/libct.

Libct is a containers management library which provides convenient API for frontend programs to rule a container during its whole lifetime.
