An OS template cache is an OS template installed into a container and then packed into a gzipped tarball. Using such a cache, a new container can be created in a matter of minutes, if not seconds.

Templates downloaded from here should be placed to /vz/template/cache. NOTE: do not unpack!

Some more templates contributed by OpenVZ community is available from contrib/. /template/precreated/
