EZ Template Management Utilities

The concept of EZ templates was introduced in Virtuozzo 3.0 for the first time. EZ templates provide the same functionality as Virtuozzo OS and application templates allowing you to share resources among lots of Containers. However, EZ templates ensure better flexibility and manageability than its counterpart and represent the preferred way to manage templates on the Hardware Node and inside your Containers.
