We are extremely excited to announce a new virtualization platform that we are offering to customers for our VPS. This latest platform is called Virtuozzo 7 which is built on top of the RHEL7. Also known as OpenVZ 7, this virtualization platform is a huge leap forward for features regarding density, management tools, and recovery. Listed below are some of the benefits and features for OpenVZ 7.
As it is based on openvz, features like memory hotplugging (increase/decreate ram on the fly), CPUs, upgrade or downgrade disk space are still supported. Openvz unlike InterServer’s KVM system can shrink as well as increase resources on the fly.
Density really refers to how much efficiency is given from our servers. Using Virtuozzo 7 increases density allowing for us to take advantage of the hardware used in the server. Not only does this prove to be beneficial to our customers, but helps us maximize output from the server itself.
In terms of performance, Virtuozzo permits a higher uptime. As part of 99.99% uptime guarantee, we constantly seek to find solutions that will enable us to meet our customer’s expectations. The way this platform handles storage ensures minimal downtime.
This virtualization platform is be comparable to OpenVZ in the fact that you can still take backups from our control panel. We understand the importance of backups, therefore we made sure to use a platform that would allow our customers to perform this action from my.interserver.net making this feature easily accessible and of an overall great value.
Another important tool that is found in our control panel for VPS is VNC. This allows our customers to connect to either their Windows Desktop or Linux command line interface. Thus far, it was only available in our KVM platform. Now with the release of Virtuozzo 7 it will be provided with VNC as an option to access your server just as you would with a KVM VPS.
If you are looking for storage with speed we do offer Virtuozzo 7 with SSD. For each slice it will cost you an additional $3. We highly recommend this option if you require this level of speed to power your websites.
If you are interested in trying out this new virtualization platform head on over to interserver.net. We sell slices at affordable prices – $6 a slice for our Linux VPS. If you decide that this platform meets your needs you can always increase your resources by purchasing more slices. We even offer a free control panel called Breadbasket which will help you manage your VPS.
