Hi guys

As we all know that openvz is using operating system level virtualization. After googling around reading the datasheet and al l the available information on VMWare website I could not manage to know which virtualization technique VMWare server is using. Is it using full virtualization (hypervisor). anyone knows any place where I can find the software and the vz technique e.g openvz os-level

Best regards

I've been an OpenVZ user for many years. I'm wondering if there's and reason why I should upgrade to Virtuozzo? And - how much does it cost? I can't find pricing on the web site. Is there any significant advantages?

This is for my spam filtering company. Currently have about 12 servers running about 50 containers.

OpenVZ is a Linux based virtualization platform that allows a physical server to run multiple isolated OS and that knows as containers, OpenVZ run OS such as Centos, Fedora, Gentoo, and Debian. &
VMware KVM, XEN, platforms can be grouped into the same category, the main difference is that they do have will not be noticeable on the virtual server and end-user

I think the main difference is "support" and possibly hosting more containers on a server.

If however you are a small hosting company its not really a "requirement" - stick to openvz and kvm for certain tasks.
