Ways to recognize which technology platform that VPS is activating on

We will show you how to recognize which technology platform that VPS is activating on in this interesting tech news.

Discrimination and choose VPS

Virtual server (Virtual Private Server-VPS) is a form of servers. They created it by dividing one physical server into many multiple different servers in nature as a separate server (dedicated server). Then they will run as divided share resources. Virtualization technology created a virtual server. It depends on the virtualization technology uses that virtual servers have properties different resource sharing.


The classified information on OpenVZ, Xen or VMWare are virtualization technologies (Virtual Platform). We use virtual server service provider to divides one physical server into many multiple virtual servers. Each technology has advantages and disadvantages:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine)

Z.com is using KVM virtualization.

KVM virtualization is a new technology that let true virtualization technology work on the hardware platform. As a result, like XEN, KVM server is provided separately to use natural resources. It avoids resource contention with another server on the same node. Root servers installed Linux. But KVM supports virtual server creation can run both Windows and Linux. It also supports both x86 and x86-64 system.

No official statistics on the advantages of KVM than XEN. However, XEN has developed about 10 years ago KVM. It can improve while KVM is new development should be involving more modern technologies and avoid unnecessary mistakes. Therefore, the choice of Virtual server for running XEN or KVM is depending on your preferences. It also depends on the prestige of hosting providers.


OpenVZ or Open Virtuozzo is the other type of system-level virtualization technology based on the Linux kernel operations. This OpenVZ obliges a physical server to run many multiple operating system instances separately. They called it virtual private servers (VPSs) or a rare name is virtual environments (VES).

OpenVZ is not really virtualization. It’s common to use a Linux kernel has been modified and thus, it can only be run only Linux operating system, so all VPSs virtual servers can also run Linux with one common technology and Kenel version. However, it is personally very fast and efficient, but it is also its drawback when all servers to share a single kernel.

Another disadvantage of the OpenVZ is the memory allocation is not independent. That means memory is allocated for this Virtual server can be used by another Virtual server in case the other Virtual server requirements. It also uses a shared file system, so each Virtual server is in fact just a change root folder. The new version of OpenVZ allows each VPS can have its own file system of itself. With the virtual folders such a Virtual server, copying a VPS by copying a file, then appropriate configuration changes and start it up as one new Virtual server.


This is virtualization technology that actually allows you to run multiple virtual VPS servers on a server physic.

XEN virtualization technology allows each virtual server running its own personnel, so a Virtual server can install Linux or Windows Operating system. Each Virtual server has its own File System and acts as an independent physical server.


The company VMWare developed VMWare virtualization technology. It supports hardware virtualization from. This technology commonly applies to large companies such as banks, and fewer uses for commercial VPS marketed.
