KVM-Based KVM Creation / Management
Virtual Servers (KVM Based and LXC Containers.
There is a big difference between LXC containers, and actual Virtual machines.
An LXC container is a light version of the Operating system installed on a virtual instance, which does most things sys admins would need from a machine.
A KVM-Based Virtual Machine in the other hand, is basicallya fully fledged machine loaded into a virtual intance. These VM's are based directly off the ISO of the operating system
This means you will be able to see the full functionallity of the server, with a few benefits, among such, we can find:
- Low Cost
- Full server access
- HDD Encryption
- High Availability
- Live Migration
- many others.
There are a few differences when you will notice when you purchase our services.
Containers: No installation will be needed. Once you purchase an LXC container, you will not be required to do any operating system at all. Once you click the purchase button, the VM will be automatically installed and deployed.
