    Which is better xen or openvz to run solusvm?

    I have a dedicated server and was wondering which virtulization is better to run solusvm, xen or openvz? I am looking to use the server to setup and supply vps to my customers.

    I'd recommend Xen if your customers are wanting to use memory intensive applications.

    Under solusvm, I recommend openvz, as solus has been supporting openvz for a lot longer, and many hosts use it for that.

    When I used solus for xen, the way it handled the xen configurations wasn't very flexible, and if you changed them manually in the /etc/xen/ files, it would change them back automatically and break your configurations. I would doubt that solus would have gotten the good reputation it has here if most hosts were using it for xen, because that was an effort in frustration.

    The Xen configuration files can be custom edited from the admin GUI now. You can make any changes you need and they will always be applied.
