    CloudLinux on KVM

    Has anyone tested CloudLinux running on KVM virtualisation? I've checked cPanel's website and they mention that it does support KVM but then when I've gone to CloudLinux's website, it states "Additionally KVM virtualization wasn't properly tested, and might be broken as well."

    We have a lot of people running CloudLinux inside KVM. That was tested.

    What wasn't tested is running CloudLinux as a host server, and running KVM servers on top of it.

    I've never tried CloudLinux inside KVM, but as you have, only confirms my thought that it would be fine, and tend to think it would be a great utility to have.

    Running a KVM host on CloudLinux, I would think would need a lot of exceptions so CloudLinux wouldn't limit a KVM process.

    CloudLinux would be running inside KVM (same way as it runs inside Xen/Vmware, etc...) -- and would have no affect on outside KVM processes at all.

    Thanks for the clarification. I shall look into purchasing a license and trialling it on a test server.
