A virtual private server VPS is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. The virtual dedicated server VDS also has a similar meaning. A virtual private server runs its own copy of an operating system OS , and customers may have superuser -level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS. For many purposes it is functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server and, being software-defined, can much more easily be created and configured. A virtual server costs much less than an equivalent physical server. However, as virtual servers share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSes, performance may be lower, depending on the workload of any other executing virtual machines. The force driving server virtualization is similar to that which led to the development of time-sharing and multiprogramming in the past.

VPS pros and cons
Virtualization KVM often choose a more loaded and demanding to resources projects. On a cheap VPS hosting, we offer a reliable location for starting level projects. OpenVZ is an OS-level virtualization technology. The technology is based on the Linux kernel and allows a single physical server to create and run isolated from each other copies of the selected operating system. Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu. Installing other operating systems is not possible, as the virtual servers share a common Linux kernel. The technology features easy server management: the user can add a number of resources in a private office memory, processor, hard disk drive or to switch to another plan with the same virtualization. Resource changes are applied automatically, without having to reboot the server. Such projects create an uneven load on the parent server, and can interfere with the adjacent virtual machines.
It is an important part of IT management, as it helps in saving time, space, and money. Nevertheless, each separated virtual server operates on a single operating system. IT management can be centralized, and data recovery becomes easy in case of any catastrophe. The system has an intuitive interface that allows managing a VPS cluster with ease. The interface is capable of customizations, making it simple to shut down, boot, reboot, suspend, or undo the virtual machines for users, resellers, and administrators. You can integrate it with control panel solutions. Users can even create their unique front-end styles and OS templates. Virtualizor is a great web-based VPS manager.
