VPS Management System for Personal Usage ??

Mahfuz_SS_EHLMahfuz_SS_EHL Member, Provider

Hi,

I want to get a Dedicated Server and provision VPS from that, so I don't want to pay for SolusVM. I searched around the globe and found:

  1. OVZ Web Panel - Seems Okay, But only OpenVZ Supported. I need Xen actually. OpenVZ is Also Okay. I can see the last Update of this Panel in 2013, so A Little bit scared of using this.

  2. HyperVM - It provisions Xen along with OpenVZ but I wonder why it doesn't support CentOS 6.x Series. Isn't CentOS 5.x series a little bit backdated ??

  3. VirtKick - Seems Okay. But, currently in Beta, Little bit Scared if it makes problem afterwards. Not sure about Virtualization support.

  4. ProxMox - Seems Okay, but the installation and afterwards management seemed quite complex to Me.

  5. Virtualizor - 1 Month Free, then charged on Amount of VMs. The 2 VPS License seems nice, only $2 Per Month. Supports OpenVZ, Xen, KVM - all.

Will you let Me know which I should work with ?? Was thinking to use Virtualizor.

Thanks,
Mahfuz.

    There is Feathur, from BlueVM. Only supports OpenVZ and no ipv6 (last I checked)

    We use Proxmox in production, works very well and pretty stable.
    The installation is quite simple [b]if[/b] you'll install it from ISO (with their Debian based distro).
    Management is pretty fine and some advanced features do exist (like HA, live migration, etc).
    Works with KVM and OpenVZ and provides nice things like noVNC consoles.

  • Just use proxmox it's really good!!

    Use to like VMware cause you can install proxmox as a guest under VMware but I still prefer proxmox cause it's basically debian.

  • I'd go for Proxmox for personal use.

    Taking a hiatus.

  • Why not VMware ESXi as @nexmark pointed out? It's free too :-)

    What's hard about the Proxmox setup?

    ik moet poepen

  • Don't use HyperVM. I learned it the hard way. There seem to be vulnerabilities where hackers can get root/admin access to your account and do all kinds of shit.

    For personal, am learning and using command line to manage my VPSes.

    Another Problem, ProxMox doesn't support Xen. I mainly need Xen. I'm now thinking to get Virtualizor.

    Proxmox and KVM is great. and using command line is even better. Libvirt/KVM is FTW.
    I didn't try XEN but not sure why you think its better than KVM .

  • Not sure how good it is now, but you can look into Citrix XenServer

  • I recommend using Proxmox as it's easy to setup and has a simple interface for personal use. Only downside is that it doesn't support Xen, but we usually use KVM instead.

  • Mahfuz_SS_EHLMahfuz_SS_EHL Member, Provider

    Doesn't KVM has overheads? Where A Node gets 185 MBPS I/O, the KVM box only gets 95-100 MBPS. Xen performs well in CPU Intensive Tasks than KVM.

    Feathur is free: https://github.com/BlueVM/Feathur

    @Mahfuz_SS_EHL well if you use qcow2 images then yes you might get that low I/O. its a tradeoff qcow2 features (encryption,snapshots,etc...) for low I/O.

    have your tried KVM with RAW block device, native I/O and no cache. it performs like a bare metal server.

    If I use feathur for my own vps (hosting own websites which are commercial) , do I need a license? Not going to sell vps.

    Also, is it required to install feathur on a fresh system, or can I install it on an existing openvz node which has few vps already ruining?

  • @Mahfuz_SS_EHL said:

    Uh, so what exactly is the problem with XenCenter and XenServer 6.5?
    If this is for personal use, especially, it has a great management interface and is stable.

    Why mess with BS software when you can have a fully developed platform?

    It is completely free, although you could donate the creator some bucks for his effort.

    Feathur is free and released under AGPL3. Licenses are only for support and really might as well be called "monthly donations". You can install feathur on a existing system. I generally recommend putting it on it's own VM as it does require nginx, mysql, etc... and may interfere with existing installations of those items on a given server.

    Tried OVZ Web Panel, didn't work. Tried Feathur but it's taking too much time to build a OpenVZ Box of 100 GB HDD @BlueVM

    Now, thinking what to do !!

    Proxmox VE has served me well so far and I'd recommend it both for personal usage and in other environments — although it may be somewhat "unattractive" to customers - but so what, it works great.

    I can't understand how to install it. From Hetzner's Panel, I can't see any option to mount ISO !

    You can also install debian wheezy first and then Proxmox VE:

  • +1 to Proxmox for KVM not use them for OpenVZ
    +1 to OVZ for OpenVZ

    Sounds like you're missing a dependency of some sort on the slave. If you'd like I can take a look or you can re-run the slave installer after stripping out the kernel changes.

    Got into exactly same shit with KVM, never knew that before.

    I wish that I had set up the client directly on that server.

    Is there any problem with Hetzner Servers ??

    A server is a server. OpenVZ runs pretty much anywhere. KVM requires CPU VT to be enabled.

    Feathur supports KVM and OpenVZ.

  • You can install proxmox directly from installimage command from rescue mode. Just select virtualization menu. But hetzner doesnt provide any support for it

  • Mahfuz_SS_EHLMahfuz_SS_EHL Member, Provider

    Successfully installed Virtualizor. Everything seems Okay just I created a VPS & it showed it was created when I ssh'ed it in with its IP, The Main Server got logged in, not the VPS. Any idea ??
