Linux OpenVZ and Windows/Linux KVM

OpenVZ and KVM are our new VPS plan

OpenVZ (Open Virtuozzo) is an operating system-level virtualization technology for Linux. Allows a physical server to run multiple isolated operating system instances, called containers, private virtual servers (VPS), or virtual environments (VE). OpenVZ is similar to Solaris Containers and LXC.



= Kernel based Virtual Machine.It is a Linux kernel virtualization infrastructure. It supports full virtualization using Intel VT or AMD-V.





KVM is true virtualization where the VPS operates as its own server, independently of the host node. OpenVZ is a container of virtualization which relies on the host node’s kernel. KVM has no restrictions in terms of functionality, but it has more overhead than OpenVZ that is constrained by the host node kernel, but it has less overhead in the containers. KVM is generally more stable than OpenVZ.

KVM VPSs are not dedicated environments. Both virtualizations share host CPU and network port among all VPSs.
