    Hello,

    VMware ESX Server and VMWare Server is excellent, I have also used Parallels Virtuozzo which isn't bad if setup right. Check this out:

    Parallel's Virtuozzo Containers is AWESOME, but expensive.


    I also recommend Xen & OpenVZ.

    There's only 3 choices: Xen, Xen and Xen. All the others are not as good.

    I would recommend OpenVZ & Xen depending what kind of setting you need it in.

    VirtualBox is nice for testing at home. Not for production.

    ESXi is great but costly to do it right.
    Xen is good but personally I like openvz

    I like OPENVZ, it's pretty stable for Linux.
    All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

    +1.

    At times I like Xen in the HVM mode. Real dedicated server emulation! Instead of using the PV mode in Xen, use OpenVZ.

    OpenVZ and Virtuozzo are the best. Very stable. we have server with uptime of over 390 days and it's running openvz.

    I'm using Linux-KVM in production last couple of months. It is very solid, with many features, i can compare it with Xen or maybe even better than Xen, but VMware should be the fist still, in terms of performance, stability and features.

    Well, I prefer OS virtualization technologies. I think they work better for web hosting because allow both providers and customers to optimize their the performance and resource usage.
