    Exclamation VPS with VMWare Server

    Hi,

    I had a bit of a search around on the forum but didn't really get any conclusive answers.

    Can I host VPSs using VMWare Server 2 (free license), because what I gather from their policy it isn't allowed, but it doesn't actually say it directly. Anyone got any ideas?

    Regards

    Rob

    1 - It would run like crap even if it was allowed
    2 - Use ESX.

    Hi,

    The CPU I am running (AMD Athlon 64 2X 5600+) doesn't support ESX does it?

    Regards

    Athlon 64 X2 5600+ supports AMD-V so it should be OK for hardware-assisted virtualisation

    After googling for a bit it looks like it might not be supported by VMware anyway, checkout Xen or KVM instead?

    Hello Dear,
    Why you specially need to host vmWare vps on your server, Your hardware is ok for vmWare but can you please explain that why not other like xen or kvm?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,

    You will get much more performance out of ESXi 4.1 than the free version of vmware server. Although the EULA, I believe, excludes using ESXi (free) for hosting companies.

    Good luck.

    Vmware has lot of hardware compatibility issue.
