    Agreed - Plus Xen is more like having a dedicated server, whereas OpenVZ is more like having a shared one.

    It honestly doesn't get much better.

    If Solus support is great and the product is very stable.

    Still has a few things that need improving/implementing but so far we're very impressed.

    So it's clear that Xen is the favourite but is everyone actually using Xen (thinking cost here) or do you actually opt for the cheaper OpenVZ.

    Also, what does Virtuozzo bring to the party if Xen out performs it and OpenVZ cheaper? Can't see why a hosting provider would fork out another ฃ100ish per month, per node (depending on containers on the node, this may be more or less)? Looks nice?

    Anyone?

    Most definitely SolusVM - it is an excellent control panel, and really easy to use (both as a system administrator, and end-user) - plus, there's an active development team working on new features all the time, and the support is really good too.

    That will vary from user to user.

    Generally, top quality hosts will use Xen, as it (almost) guarantees that you will get the resources the provider states you will have.
    OpenVZ is far easier to oversell on the other hand - which is why unfortunately, a lot of hosts use it.

    Let's put it this way, if there were two hosts, with identical plans (ignoring things like customer support etc. for the moment), one offering OpenVZ plans, and the other offering Xen at the same price, I would definitely go for Xen.

    not very important to me, what panel it is, or does i even have access to some panel.
    but some ppl like client vps panels, solusvm seems to be one of the currently popular ones.

    +1 for Xen. More isolation from others on the carrier = more stability!

    How so? I assume you've used Virtuozzo and Openvz to say this. I'm keen to hear why it's more "versatile".

    Yes I have; I just feel it is a better container. It is of course my opinion, and nothing more - its not backed by scrupulous market data
