Unmatched Server Virtualization Extended
Virtuozzo for Linux and Virtuozzo for Windows create multiple isolated virtual private servers (VPSs) on a single physical server enabling each VPS to perform and execute exactly like a standalone server. Virtuozzo provides operating system (OS) level virtualization that delivers following unique benefits:

  • Highest Performance and Scalability – Efficient technology with near-zero overhead; scalable to 16-CPU SMP systems and up to 64 GB of RAM.

  • Expansive Hardware and Software Support – Complete platform parity; interacts with existing Linux and Windows operating systems and any underlying hardware; fully supports native 32 and 64-bit systems.

  • Maximum Density – A single physical server can house up to tens or hundreds of VPSs; a single VPS is able to scale to the full capacity of the server.

  • Robust Service Level Management – Real-time control over CPU, memory, disk and network I/O resources with monitoring, accounting and reporting.

  • High Availability – Migrate VPS(s) quickly from one server to another with minimal downtime.

  • Powerful Toolsets – Self management of large and potentially remote groups of servers and VPSs with a full set of administrative and VPS owner web-based, client and command line tools.

  • Rapid ROI – Virtuozzo drives lower hardware, software and management costs to minimize total cost of ownership and facilitate a rapid ROI.
