    Question Dedicated & VPS under one roof

    Hi guys.

    I read the forum for a couple of month. And now I'm able to start dedicated hosting project.
    But some time ago I have read here that Virtual Private Servers became popular.

    What Software do you use to house both VP and dedicated servers under one roof?

    Depending on hardware configuration you can probably split one dedicated into at least 4 VPS servers. There are only two software packages that I know of for doing this...


    Ensim

    VMware

    I think that with VMware the licensing requires you need to use the ESX server software for running VPS servers.

    you could theoretically hack something together with uml, though im not sure if that would be production level stable.

    FreeVSD is not a true VPS solution as it does not provide actual root or guarentee any CPU or Memory usage.

    Virtuzzo
    serverXchange
    idayaVSD

    I guess the best is virtuzzo for VPS solutions. You can make over 100 VPS in one machine but with serverXchange not more than 50

    Have you tried all these? How do you know what one is the best? Just a month ago you were asking what VDS platforms are out there.

    Also, is more always better?

    The _ability_ to create more, IMHO, is better. How if a server is _under utilized_ even with 50 VPS accounts? Should not we be able to add more VPS on the server?

    I have not tried any other VPS besides virtuozzo, so I can't compare them. But I am quite happy with virtuozzo and I will recommend it.

    It's exactly what I want to ask now

    And what billing software do you use? Do you separate VPS and dedicated hosting plans or use one billing platform for both?
