    Marc,

    I'm not sure at what level of understand you're at, however talking in a very general way (this is a BROAD subject). Its a combination between software (virtualization technology, such as Xen, OpenVZ (virtuozzo) and some others) and hardware. As for Hardware its a matter of how much you can afford and the quality you want to provide.

    An example of a configuration would be
    Software: Virtuozzo , or Xen (which ever you feel fits your needs paravirtualization of OS virtualization (look up in wikipedia)

    Hardware:
    Dual processor Xeon Quad Core server
    16 GB RAM
    1TB of diskspace in raid 10 (4 500gb disks in raid 10)
    3ware raid card with battery unit
    motherboard, case, redundant power supplies, etc.

    This is just a little bit of information, but you need to get some "studying" to really understand every single aspect of hosting VPS.

    Good luck!

    The requirements is a function of what you want to do with the server. ie, if you want to run 8 256MB vps, then you need a bit more than 2 gigs of RAM on a server, and CPU and Disk I/O to maintain those. If you want to do twice as much, then you need twice as much ram. There are no fixed requirements. You can take an old machine and install virtuozzo on it and just do one or two vps (Virtuozzo is not free, so this is not practical, only doable).

    For software there's a lot of options, but Virtuozzo, OpenVZ and Xen seem to be the most popular out there.

    HyperVM is not a Virtualization platform. Its a web based panel for VPS management and VPS deployment.

    You would be able to use HyperVM along with either XEN or OpenVZ. I personally use OpenVZ

    You can provide budget service with non-rackmount equipment and non-raid disks. I suspect many providers do it to save money.

    Its a little bit frustrating to offer VPS service on high-end equipment since many customers don't understand the difference and only see your prices.

    So, as always, identify your target market and build what they are willing to pay for.

    This is also kind of a double edged sword, you can provide excellent VPS service on commodity equipment, as long as you do not oversell the hardware, the customer will experience an excellent service.

    I have nodes with dual quad cpu's, 16gb ram and 8 drive hardware raid10 along with dual core, 4gb ram and software raid0 that preform equally well, as neither are overloaded and all are actively managed to put customers on the class hardware their usage requires. HyperVM has been able to allow this to happen for providers so costs can be reduced, performance maximized, and overall customer experience raised. But like anything, if you oversell it, customers will be disappointed with the end result.

    Hey,

    Your best bet is to use the HyperVM with the Xen base.

    You can gain further information about HyperVM at the following website:

    http://lxlabs.com/software/hypervm/

    Also, I recommend you look in the region of having the following server specifications:

    Intel Core 2 Quad
    2 x 500GB+ HDD with RAID1 or 5 configuration
    8GB RAM

    A server like this with an Xen base will allow you to host quite a few VPS on one server and also provides the client with a superior service aslong as its not overloaded, which isn't a problem using Xen as its not possible, although if you use OpenVZ as your base, it can be overloaded and clients may avoid using you.

    Good luck.

    Kind regards,
    Mark G.

    You can provide good service on consumer grade equipment, but not excellent service.

    We run a very lean operation on top of high-quality equipment and we are profitable, but not rolling in cash. If we used tower cases with single power supplies and single drives and crammed more users on a node, we'd definitely make more money (in the short run) but risk some downtime, which business users can't tolerate.
