Our virtual machines run on Linux KVM/QEMU. KVM/QEMU provides full hardware virtualization and is not a hypervisor like Xen.
To emphasize what is different about us compared with most providers:
We proudly support alternative OS', such as FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and (coming soon) NetBSD. We even have some Plan 9 VPS' running around!
We run our own network, which is fully redundant, with over 50 peers, so latency is better than a lot of guys. Also, if we have a problem with one of our providers, it won't fully take out the network.
Latency to Asia and Australia is especially good because we have peers that feed us direct routes to those regions.
We're native IPv6 capable. Each customer gets an IPv6 block by default.
We try to keep our boxes lightly loaded, no crowding.
You can compile your own kernel. Most providers make you use theirs.
Our servers have redundant power supplies feeding into separate PDUs which in turn feed into different branch circuits. These branch circuits also feed into N+1 UPS bays. Power (or lack there of) should not be a reason a server goes down.
All servers have RAID 10, for the lowest latency in read/write.
We spend about $5,000 USD for a production VM box. These aren't cheapies you get off eBay, like some of the more "volume" providers out there. In turn, customers benefit from hardware that performs well and has many more years of life in it.
We've been doing the service provider dance for over 12 years, since 1999! We know our way around networks, systems, data centers, and coding. This experience helps greatly in building reliable services. We're not new to the game like many other providers you see popping up.
