Do I lose much by going for Open VZ 7 rather than nested virtualization?
I want to run my own stuff on a powerful VPS, ie I am not sharing anything with anybody.
It is just about consolidating the small nodes scattered here and there onto a single powerful system as the tasks are not that demanding.
I generally use KVM because I prefer the isolation and I don't have to ask the provider to tweak this or tweak that because it is the equivalent of a dedicated server with some minor omissions.
If I switch to Open VZ 7 will I lose much over KVM? What are the significant features I will miss?
I want to consolidate on some Netcup's root servers eg the RS 4000 which comes with 32Gb RAM and 6 dedicated cores.
The problem is with Netcup cpu passthrough will cost 12 euro a month (2 euro per core) and it has to be paid yearly in advance and that makes me wonder whether plain Open VZ 7 will work just as fine.
I suppose I could go for a cheap dedicated with a provider like Hetzner, but I don't want to have to tackle hardware issues.
