XEN and OpenVZ VPS

VPS6.net offers both XEN and OpenVZ VPS hosting services. What is XEN and OpenVZ VPS hosting and how could you benefit? Let’s start out with the definition of VPS. VPS or virtual private server is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS. They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server.


Xen VPS is powered by Xen Project, which is an open-source type-1 or baremetal hypervisor, which makes it possible to run many instances of an operating system or indeed different operating systems in parallel on a single machine. It is used as the basis for a number of different commercial and open source applications such as:

  • server virtualization
  • infrastructure as a service
  • desktop virtualization
  • security applications
  • embedded and hardware appliances

Xen VPS can host on both Linux and Windows operating systems. It provides accounts with full root access, provides totally dedicated RAM resources, and provides totally dedicated CPU resources. Also, it supports swap space, provides fully independent logical disk volume and kernel install and related modules, and high level of customization.


OpenVZ is a container-based virtualization for Linux only. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated Linux containers on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. The software is used for the same reasons that Xen VPS is used for.

OpenVZ provides accounts with full root access, provides ability to offer “guaranteed” and “burst” RAM, and upgrades to RAM and DISK are extremely easy and can be done without reboot. It’s a simple to use and more user friendly due to lightweight virtualization platform. It’s an inexpensive solution, has shared CPU, and no dedicated Kernel.
