Frequently Asked Questions
What is OpenVZ?
OpenVZ (Open Virtuozzo) is an operating system-level virtualization technology based on the Linux kernel and operating system. OpenVZ allows a physical server to run multiple isolated operating system instances, known as containers, Virtual Private Servers (VPSs), or Virtual Environments (VEs). It is similar to FreeBSD jails and Solaris Zones.
What is KVM?
Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a virtualization infrastructure for the Linux kernel. KVM requires a processor with hardware virtualization extension. KVM has also been ported to FreeBSD and Illumos in the form of loadable kernel modules. KVM is synonymous with Virtual Dedicated Hosting.
