KVM Virtualisation

A reliable solution with a wide rande of software accessories

Open source KVM (Kernel based Virtual Machine) technology is used to virtualise servers at the Linux kernel level and thus correspond to full virtualisation.

Advantages of KVM Virtualisation

Resource administration and distribution

Allocating resources to individual VPSs is very easy and reliable thanks to the connection to Linux. In addition, there are a number of administration interfaces for KVM, of which we use Proxmox technology in the Master.

Storage options

Any storage that is supported by Linux can be connected to KVM, including network attached storage NAS. Support for shared file systems, in turn, allows the image of virtual machines to be shared with multiple hosts.

Dynamic (live) migration

With dynamic migration support, it is possible to move running virtual machines between physical servers without interrupting service. The user will hardly notice the migration.

Offer of the VPS with KVM Virtualisation

Using KVM technology, we virtualise our powerful Dell and Foxconn servers and thus offer a suitable solution for a wide range of projects. In addition, the parameters can be adjusted exactly to measure in the configurator.

Virtualisation architecture using KVM

Giant to giants

Red Hat’s cooperation with leading IT companies such as Intel or Net App is behind the development of KVM technology. For its reliability and stability, KVM is used by a number of companies, including the major US bank Wells Fargo or the technology company Oracle.
