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.
