We're hosting several major customers in OpenVz containers, and it  
works very well. We'll be transitioning our entire environment into  
containers over time, including relatively high traffic client sites  
like Square Meal, as it makes the entire environment a lot more  
flexible (in terms of minimizing the need for overcapacity, or  
handling failing hardware without downtime for example). I'm just now  
actually configuring more servers for a new major customer, and on  
those everything will be running in OpenVz containers. So far so good  
- we've had no major problems with it.

I've not tested Vserver.
