    This is a copy of the post I made in another thread. I split it off for more visiblity.

    www.jodohost.com/windows-vps.asp (Hyper-V page is replacing, virtuozzo page, vz moving to own)

    now I know will be a number of questions on the plans and why we have both.

    VZ is great for many purposes, for hosting it is excellent.
    It has cheaper Plesk for control panel(Hyper-V bills like dedicated server)

    It also has a template filesystem, so you get about 29.5GB of 30Gb for instance, usable disk space.

    Hyper-V has a full install taking away about 15GB of the disk space right off the top.

    virtuozzo plans have external SQL Server access, Hyper-V plans do not, we will be adding that as an addon shortly.

    Virtuozzo support tickets for us to do tasks are a bit cheaper at $3 per issue(as long as not taking 15+ minutes)

    Hyper-V support tasks are $20 minimum, 30 minutes billed, and we offer addon support plans for them as well that will reduce that if you would like.

    Differences in them:
    Virtuozzo has less IO overheard due to the template OS, and no hardware emulation.

    Hyper-V has hardware emulation, but requires a full windows install, it also allows a custom sized swap file (virtuozzo is pegged to amount of RAM only).

    Virtuozzo doesn't allow kernel modules for VPN clients, live anti virus, etc, Hyper-V does allow them.

    Virtuozzo Windows updates are handled by the node, and if you install on own will have problems, Hyper-V is 100% by YOU, we do not provide Windows Updates outside of a support contract. On Hyper-V you have the same risk as a regular desktop/server platform in Windows Updates.

    Virtuozzo has a built in control panel that does a lot more, allowing off server backups to be taken on demand, Hyper-V does the basics like on and off. With Hyper-V currently you will need a support plan for backups to be taken by us, in the near future we will be adding SAN and iSCSI addons for you to mount a backup point within your Hyper-V.

    Feel free to ask questions if you have, this is a quick summary.

    We will be adding more features and addons over the next months, feel free to discuss what could/should be added.

    I have moved this from our customer only section into the public Hyper-V section.
    We wanted to have Hyper-V and virtuozzo sections separate so that issues can be handled most appropriately.

    With the Hyper-V solutions, will there be a MS SQL add-on option if we wanted to avoid installing sql express?

    Yes there will be a price per 100MB on a dedicated SQL solution that only VPS clients access, I know the pricing we have discussed but can't say just yet as it is not on the site. It would be MS SQL 2008.
