I am putting a new server in a datacenter for company use and my company website. I use a lot of VPS accounts and in that world the choices are xen or openvz. I will be using virtualization on my dedicated server. It is difficult to find any information comparing the platforms outside of the VPS service context. We will not be renting out VPS accounts, we only wish to run isolated environments, and avoid the cost of multiple servers. I understand the basic difference of os level virtualization vs. hypervisor paravirtualization. It seems that most big companies are using xen, but in my experience openvz can achive better performance, due to the pooled resources, as many containers are likely to be idle. Does anyone have any experience with openvz or xen in this context?
