What do you run as your host node for your vps technology and why?

    All of IPXcore's nodes were RHEL(some Centos, some SL), because that's what Solus specifies.

    I am no longer affiliated with IPXcore.
  • All my base systems are EL based, CentOS and Scientific Linux, because that is what the software I run requires on them. After years of using, I prefer it for oddball stuff I do on my own as well.

  • My nodes are on RHEL as well.

  • So the theme seems to be 'because solusvm requires it we use it'. That's not a bad thing....but I wonder if there was a debian alternative that could match the features in solusvm if people would use it?

  • Never knew that solusvm requires RHEL specifically. Personally I prefer it over debian, this is why I use it (except the fact that apperantely deb is not supported in solusvm, which I didn't knew till now).

    RHEL 6 over here as well. Will be using Debian on our future deployments though.

  • RHEL - it's all OnApp will work with.

    OVZ web panel works in Debian I believe. It's perfectly fine. I think most of us probably don't care which distro it is for a client node as long as it's stable. If I were to make up numbers on the spot, I'd say the OVZ kernel is 80% of the deal and you're not going to be getting around that very easily.

    CentOS here. I prefer RHEL-based distros on physical servers but use Debian on my VPSs. I was going to switch to Debian but their crusade against proprietary drivers made the install impossible and the "non-free" ISOs I found wouldn't finish (probably corrupted but I couldn't be bothered to find other mirrors after 2 attempts).

  • @KuJoe said: CentOS and CloudLinux here What's the advantage of CloudLinux for a virt node? Haven't looked at CloudLinux in a while, but I thought it was mostly about resource isolation/protection for websites/users/vhosts, and more geared for a cPanel box?

  • Doh! Misread.

    Also interested in @KuJoe talking about CloudLinux...

    Is it possible to use Debian to host OVZ boxes etc?

    Twitter Bootstrap Themes for your software projects. I recommend Prometeus and Catalyst Host

  • @JCaleb yeah I think so; I just don't think it's supported.

    Centos.

  • @eastonch said: @JCaleb yeah I think so; I just don't think it's supported.

    It's supported, but you'd be in CLI only; none of the panels support it.

    Proxmox is Debian based

  • @Damian really? Thought Solus was working with it, just not "fluently".

    And really @miTgiB? ;] (I hate spelling your name...)

  • @miTgiB said: Proxmox is Debian based

    Ah yes, I forget about Proxmox until I need to look up how to do something in OVZ.

  • Honestly, if Solus supported Debian - We'd move without a second though. Debian is the way forward! So much better than Centos.

    Spell it backwards, its easier

  • CentOS 6 here, as well, SolusVM supports it, and 1 node with Proxmox (ie, Debian)
