 Any additional software installs are typically done into OpenVZ containers, not onto the host system, which is why we're able to keep the root filesystem small (only leaving some room for upgrades to future versions of Owl itself). ​ In fact, the OpenVZ security model assumes that the host system is only used to control the containers, not to run any services not essential to that purpose. Any additional software installs are typically done into OpenVZ containers, not onto the host system, which is why we're able to keep the root filesystem small (only leaving some room for upgrades to future versions of Owl itself). ​ In fact, the OpenVZ security model assumes that the host system is only used to control the containers, not to run any services not essential to that purpose.
