Digital Networks Offers Open Source Virtualization Platforms

5th March 2009


From today, we are now offering our servers with Xen and OpenVZ. These are available installed free of charge and there are no licensing costs. Both technologies use the GPL license and provide full source code.

Xen is a hypervisor that was created at the University of Cambridge and first released in 2003. It supports both para-virtualization for guest operating systems that have been modified (most Linux distributions) and full virtualization for unmodified guest operating systems such as Windows.

OpenVZ is an operating system-level virtualization technology that uses the Linux kernel. It first appeared in 2001 and was released under the open source GPL license in 2005. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated containers on a single physical server. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server.

As well as Xen and OpenVZ, we can also offer KVM based systems and VirtualBox for desktop based virtualization.

About Xen
The Xen hypervisor, the powerful open source industry standard for virtualization, offers a powerful, efficient, and secure feature set for virtualization of x86, x86_64, IA64, PowerPC, and other CPU architectures. It supports a wide range of guest operating systems including Windows, Linux, Solaris, and various versions of the BSD operating systems.

About OpenVZ
OpenVZ is container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server.
