KVM vs OpenVZ

First of many things, our KVM plans fully support Docker however this isn't supported on our OpenVZ plans. KVM provides full virtualisation from the bottom to the top. Clients are able to run latest 3.x & custom kernels, docker, LUKS disk encryption with custom partitioning and full isolation from neighbours (other VMs on the node), custom operating systems including Windows as a result each virtual machine has private virtualised hardware including network card, disk and graphics adapter which is not possible on OpenVZ.

On the other hand, OpenVZ is ideal for most who are on a budget and do not have any advanced requirements. It is cheaper to run due to being less resource intensive as it is container-based and all VMs run off the host node kernel and so price is marginally lower whilst providing good performance at the same time.

If you are still are unsure as to which platform would work best for you, please feel free to contact us with your requirements and we will be happy to assist you.

Enterprise Hardware

All our KVM nodes consist of a minimum of Intel CPUs, 128GB RAM, 12 SSDs in RAID10 array. This gives great performance and reliability for all clients on the nodes.

No Restrictions

With our KVM plans there are no restrictions or the need to manually enable kernel modules via the control panel/manual ticket request. You have full access to the kernel allowing you to load whatever you wish.

Easy Upgrades

You can easily upgrade or downgrade between the plans we offer without having to wait around or submit ticket. Simply goto the client area and under my products/services you will see a option to upgrade/downgrade your service.

500Gbp DDoS Protection

If you require DDoS protection we offer up to 500Gbps protection in London for additional +£2.50/mo per IP.

VPS Control Panel

All plans come with a basic control panel to manage your VPS. This allows you start/stop/reboot your server, reinstall with a clean OS, set rDNS for IPv4 & IPv6, view resource usage and graphs.
