    VPS question...

    Can you advise me on the hosting company that offer vps hosting services with the amount CPU allotted specifically to this plan and not shared equally between all clients on the server.

    As in the second case, each client added to the server, will eat up a share of CPU and I donít think itís logical to pay $90.00 and get the same amount of CPU as someone who pays $20.00

    There are many that do that, I would recommend looking around the providers here and checking out their websites. Most of them have a live chat function and then you can gather which ones do and then search them on WHT

    The CPU allotment is usually specified on the order form as guaranteed. Also, it's a good idea to check out the providers that have set the VPS density per server to a certain number. For example, some limit the VPS count to 8 or 10. That in itself guarantees resources to an extent, keeping in mind the guaranteed CPU option mentioned above.

    Depends on the number of guest in one node. in normal practice share will be the most common because the provider control everything. dedicated cpu will not so flexible to the provider, as it is dedicated and overselling will on kill the server faster

    What you are looking for is called a dedicated hybrid. WiredTree and ServInt have them with dedicated CPU cores, though keep in mind they are usually cost quite a bit more than a VPS.

    Hyper-V allows the host to control the amount of CPU that is dedicated to a certain virtual server. Find yourself a Hyper-V host that suits your needs, and approach them about dedicating CPU to your server. With Hyper-V, RAM is always dedicated. The other contention you may worry about is hard disk drives. Many hosts will share hard drives between a lot of VPSes. This could bring down your VPS performance significantly.

    Do you have a budget in mind for this VPS you are looking for? and is a control panel required? cPanel, Plesk, Webmin, Virtualmin?

    Cheers.

    Try to find Hyper-V VPS company, because Hyper-V technology has that possibility - to dedicate CPU for VPS.

    have a look on sites from the offers section, loads of them now are giving dedicated CPU for VPS servers.
    Shouldn't be too hard to find some.

    Hi,

    It is possible to define CPU reserve in Hyper-V as well as CPU priority, and percent of total CPU resources. It works flawlessly, we have some VPS customers which use CPU extensively and get performance better than dedicated server with comparable price.

    XENServer also has hard limits and you can look at those companies overing this VPS technology.

    True, Hyper-V is the way to go here. Also, you can get more vCPU's with Hyper-V which will help you in getting more CPU power.
