leave a comment »

HyperVM is a web based application that will allow you to create and manage different Virtual Machines each with each vps having its own Operating System. HyperVM also allows you to run multiple HyperVM servers linked together providing a tree of host servers.

HyperVM advanced features allow you to manage your vps hosting from a single console. HyperVm has been optimized for allowing you to have HyperVM clustered servers from anywhere in the world. These are some of HyperVM features:

Quote Taken from

* “Full Distribution.”
* “Manage your entire data center.”
* “HyperVM is successfully used by our clients to manage 1000s of vpses on 100s of servers.”
* “Support for Windows Virtualization.”
* “HyperVM allows efficient windows virtualization with advanced features like backup/restore built in.”
* “Support for multiple virtualization technologies.”
* “Live Migrate”

This install of HyperVM is for Fedora Core servers, and this install was done on Fecora Core 6. This will use the XEN  kernel, memory will be set at a dedicated limit. The limit will allow customers programs to run slower when they reach their limit unlike Openvnz their programs will normally crash. HyperVM will also require you to reboot after changes to the vps like memory or hard drive space. Openvnz will do these changes instantly.
