OpenVZ or KVM!

We are starting a vps business at LET prices soon and we need to choose between KVM and Openvz.

So which one would you like us to provide?
(Note: KVM will be a bit more expensive but more reliable.

    There's no option for 'please don't start a business at LET prices'.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

  • Considered Xen? I predict 2014 to be a good year for Xen :)

    VMWare :P

    Based on what factors?

    What makes xen better as KVM?

  • @Nekki said:

    Largely PVH + ease of adding to CentOS now.

    PVH?

    Basically the best of HVM and PV combined. Tried finding some good reference for you to read. This might be a start:

  • KVM better than OpenVZ ..

  • RadiRadi Member, Provider

    Both. Build OVZ inside a big KVM vps and you rock :D.

    4 GB RAM/90 GB SSD/4 TB Traffic/KVM/1 IPv4 for $7/mo only here with coupon code "LET-It-GO".

    Then i would choose KVM over the oversold openvz.

  • Definitely KVM. There are already quiet a few OVZ providers here!

    I ❤ Laravel

  • I consider a KVM node sold to the point of poor I/O oversold. So don't fall into the "you can't oversell KVM" trap. I also agree with what @FtpIt_Radi said starting out, split the node in half with a KVM and slab openVZ.

    KVM can also be oversold on network/CPU/RAM/disk space etc.

  • I heard people are overselling IPs now.

    That would be a good idea because we are getting plans in US(dallas) and Netherlands(Amsterdam)

    Probably one of the nodes (NL)
    L5520 / E5
    72/128gb ram
    8x2tb raid
    2x1 gbps

    This can be easely splitted..

    I was trying to make the point that KVM and not just OpenVZ could be oversold too

  • @FrankZ said:

    Indeed, I was merely supporting you on that point.

    How would you do that??

  • @BuckVM said:

    You split the IP in half or more but your router should support it. And I believe there must be a kernel module enabled on your node.

    CPU = yes

    RAM = with ballooning yes

    Disk Space = Not in SolusVM environments since it does not support thin provisioning(correct me if I am wrong)

  • @K2Bytes said:

    You're right. Not everyone uses SolusVM for KVM though.

    Sounds interesting,
    But im not into the overselling of resources.

    We also trying serveral control panels.
    Any panel suggestions?

  • Thats different, thats a private ISP for home use with dynamic IPs. Overselling IPs in that sense IS how you do it.

    And given the IP crunch, I'd rather see all that space taken back and NAT everybody and hand out IPv6 static blocks for customers that need incoming ports.

    You, sir, are a dork.

  • @Exelion said:

    That's where ISPs are heading here, minus the giving our IPv6 part of course!

  • @BuckVM said:

    If you are going with only the KVM and OpenVZ options, there are the obvious choices like SolusVM, but I think a ProxMox or scripted back end with a custom designed user panel would give you more flexibility and uniqueness going forward.

  • Xen HVM FTW

    And what @Nekki said.

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!
