LXC : integrated in upstream kernel. All you need are userspace tools, and a little bit of messing around with cgroups to get all the OpenVz features.

OpenVz : isn't in upstream kernel. You need to patch or get a patched kernel. And there isn't any patch for kernel 3.x (fast search didn't give me any). But it could be easiest to configure.

OpenVz also has the checkpointing and live migration.

With Fedora 16 I would try LXC. With RHEL 5 I would try LXC to not get a unsupported kernel. With CentOS I would try OpenVz and test the live migration option.
