OpenVZ Virtualization

Posted in Technology Bites on Feb 23, 2015

ScopeHosts Introduced OpenVZ VPS Services in Germany Location with 100Mbps Unmetered Bandwidth on 31st March 2011. This service was provided on the Solusvm Control Panel Platform. Now let us go through this post for more information related to OpenVZ Virtualization and its advantages.

OpenVZ (Open Virtuozzo) is an application based Virtualization Technology  mounted on the  base Linux kernel and operating system. OpenVZ allows a physical server to run multiple isolated operating system within a separate environment, called containers, virtual private servers (VPSs).

Here in this Virtualization technology each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server, a container can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.

 

What is SolusVM?

Solus Virtual Manager (SolusVM) is a powerful GUI based VPS management system with full support provided on OpenVZ, Linux KVM, Xen Paravirtualization and Xen HVM Virtualization Technology. SolusVM allows us to provide VPS Services and helps our clients to manage their VPS through this Secured and GUI based Management system.

 Compare OpenVZ with Other Virtualization Techniques:

  • Some other Virtualization Technologies like VMware and XEN allows user to run several Operating Systems and Kernel Versions, Where as OpenVZ can run only on Linux Operating System, It uses a single patched Linux kernel     which leads all containers share the same architecture and kernel version.

  • OpenVZ has burstable memory which can be used by multiple virtual Environments only when it is available to use on Main server. If the Usage of memory reaches the Maximum memory limit Many process will be aborted and VPS starts beaming memory Errors.XEN has SWAP memory allocation, helps to free up the RAM.

*OpenVZ many running processes will be stopped due to over usage of memory  for better performance. XEN allows user to experience the high performance. As it has SWAP memory allocation, leads to run many applications on VPS at an Extreme Load.

  • OpenVZ VPS are most suitable for the clients who are surfing for solid performance at affordable price. XEN Virtualization is suitable for the one who is more concern about VPS stability and  Higher performance rather than Cost.
