OpenVZ vs RamNode: What are the differences?
Developers describe OpenVZ as "Open source container-based virtualization for Linux". Virtuozzo leverages OpenVZ as its core of a virtualization solution offered by Virtuozzo company. Virtuozzo is optimized for hosters and offers hypervisor (VMs in addition to containers), distributed cloud storage, dedicated support, management tools, and easy installation. On the other hand, RamNode is detailed as "High Performance SSD and SSD-Cached VPSs". You won't find a better performing VPS anywhere else. Our SSD and SSD-Cached VPSs are the best in the industry. We implement some of the most cutting edge systems and configurations to ensure your VPS meets and exceeds your expectations.
OpenVZ and RamNode are primarily classified as "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" and "Cloud Hosting" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by OpenVZ are:
- A container (CT) looks and behaves like a regular Linux system. It has standard startup scripts
- Software from vendors can run inside a container without OpenVZ-specific modifications or adjustment
- A user can change any configuration file and install additional software
On the other hand, RamNode provides the following key features:
- Performance I/O
- Powerful CPUs
