Well, like I said I have little to no experience with a VPS aside from *having* one for a short time.
Perhaps I should have asked:
Is VMWare an acceptable substitute for HyperVM, given that the current setup on the hardware is HyperVM, Xen (containers?), and WHM/cPanel.
Does VMWare perform the same function as did HyperVM?
I'm not asking to be spoon-fed, so if anyone has links to some place that clearly explains the roles of that mix, I''m perfectly willing to read.
It's just Google apparently doesn't know what I'm "asking" it, and the VMWare site is full of the usual "Newspeak B.S." that fills pages and pages, but says very little about the actual product and exactly what it does. Even their "introduction" to VPS's assumes you already *know* most of what you're asking.
VMware is not a substitue for HyperVM, HyperVM is just a control panel that needs an OS and Visualization software (openvz or Xen) while VMware ESX for example is a Hypervisor that run directly on the hardware.
Xen is also a Hypervisor like VMware so you shouldn't run one inside the other, it's like running a container inside a container, it just doesn't make sense.
