About our VPS Technology
Our VPS's are powered by OpenVZ, a leading open source container-based virtualization solution built on Linux. OpenVZ creates isolated, secure 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; containers can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.
The OpenVZ project is an open source community project supported by Parallels and is intended to provide access to the code and ultimately for the open source community to test, develop and further the OS virtualization effort. It is in the lead in terms of new technology advancements and develpments bringing the one of the fastest and robust virtualization technology available today.
