About Virtualizor


What is Virtualizor ?
Virtualizor is a powerful web based VPS Control Panel. It supports OpenVZ, Xen PV, Xen HVM and Linux KVM virtualization. Admins can create a VPS on the fly by the click of a button. VPS users can start, stop, restart and manage their VPS using a very advanced web based GUI.

Virtualizor supports OpenVZ which is container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated Linux containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server; a container can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.

Xen is a Hypervisor providing services that allow multiple computer operating systems to execute on the same computer hardware concurrently. Virtualizor supports both the different XEN approaches to running the guest operating system. The choice of approach is up to the Xen hosting system administrator.
Xen pioneered a form of virtualization known as paravirtualization, in which guests run a modified operating system.
Xen uses modified version of Qemu to emulate full PC hardware, including BIOS, IDE disk controller, VGA graphic adapter, USB controller, network adapter etc for HVM guests. CPU virtualization extensions are used to boost performance of the emulation.

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a virtualization infrastructure for the Linux kernel. KVM supports native virtualization on processors with hardware virtualization extensions. KVM is supported by numerous processors and Operating Systems and hence it makes it an ideal form of virtualization. With Virtualizaor a more efficient and Hassle free KVM virtualization is possible.
