If you’re looking to use a dedicated server to run solutions such as Virtual Private Servers (VPS), a high-quality virtualisation package will be essential. Therefore, it may be a good idea for you to explore options such as OpenVZ, which is an operating system-level technology based on the Linux kernel. This allows users to run multiple virtual servers known as containers. Each instance can be operated as a standalone server, running its own operating system that can be managed independently without affecting any other virtual server contained on the same physical server.
One of the key benefits of opting for OpenVZ technology to help with this is that the application is scalable and offers low overhead costs, allowing companies to improve their flexibility, efficiency and quality of service. According to OpenVZ, the system is able to be scaled just as well as a standard Linux kernel and is capable of handling hundreds of CPUs and terabytes of RAM, so it should be suitable for any purpose businesses may require in the future. Parallels claims such tools can cut the costs of maintaining data centers by up to 75%, as well as give a significant performance boost to applications hosted on the server.
The company states: “Parallels Virtuozzo Containers enables near-native server performance, delivering maximum application performance and scalability for a given virtual CPU configuration.” The result of this is that performance can be boosted by as much as 50%, while users are also to easily scale up their operations by adding new services quickly and easily. While OpenVZ requires that a server to run the Linux operating system in order to manage virtual containers, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers also offers an option for Windows, which can help reduce the time and resources required to maintain Windows VPS solutions.
