By utilizing para-virtualization technology, our OpenVZ plans are able to offer unparalleled performance, meaning you get more out of your VPS account. We're also please to announce that all OpenVZ instances are SSD backed, so you now get even more performance than ever before - a massive help for the next big cloud product you've just created!
If your project requires something a little different, our hypervisor based KVM instances let you install custom operating systems via disc image. This gives you greater flexibility over the project, by giving you fine grained control over which operating system + software configuration powers your virtual machine.
Hypervisor guests are futher isolated from the host and don't require the same operating system on both host and guest. This allows you to install alternative plaforms, from Windows to Solaris!
KVM instances also boast increased disk access and RAM swap speeds, suitable for hosting write-heavy applications or large databases that make frequent storage requests.
