Are you a UC provider seeking an alternative to traditional LXCs (Linux Containers)? 

Look no further, because SERVERware 4.5 has introduced a game-changing feature that allows Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVMs) to serve as versatile VPS engines, revolutionizing your virtualization experience.


Performance Meets Security

KVM VPSs may offer slightly different performance levels compared to LXC-hosted ones, but what sets them apart is their superior security options.

While LXC relies on shared resources and potentially exposes your clients to security risks, KVM ensures that each VPS operates in its fully virtualized environment. This is a superior approach to partitioning resources and safeguarding your clients’ data. 

In today’s security-conscious business landscape, this is a game-changer. Your clients’ data and operations remain protected by high-level safeguards, offering you the peace of mind and confidence you need to excel in the UC provider arena.

Empower Your Clients with Efficiency

With KVM hosted VPSs, your clients can still enjoy all the core functionalities they’re accustomed to. From easy replication and seamless backups to flexible removal options, managing VPSs is highly efficient. 

SERVERware 4.5 ensures that your clients have the tools they need to succeed, making you their go-to provider.

Demystifying KVM – Your Competitive Edge

KVM, short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine, is aimed to be an integral part of SERVERware’s diverse technology.

It’s based on Firecracker, an open-source virtualization technology designed explicitly for creating and managing secure, multi-tenant container services. This technology provides better isolation, enhanced security, and a competitive edge for your business.

The Power of Open Standards

SERVERware’s implementation of KVM allows you to run unmodified Linux containers as VPSs, including popular options like PBXware and Docker containers fetched as OCI images from Docker Hub and similar sources. 

Plus, you have the freedom to pack and distribute service software using open standards and tools, empowering your business like never before.

Better Isolation, Less Exposure

With KVM, each VPS becomes a fully emulated or virtualized machine, offering better isolation and reduced exposure to malicious software or user behavior. 

VPSs using KVM as their engine can now safely change engines from LXC to KVM, be replicated, taken over, backed up, restored, moved between hosts, or change partitions. KVM VPSs even provide call stats and secure web browser access through the TTY terminal.

Expanding Horizons with Virtual Networks

SERVERware doesn’t stop at security and performance. We’ve added support for virtual networks for KVM VPSs, enhancing connectivity options for your clients. 

Moreover, KVM VPSs can now fetch PBXware licenses, just like their LXC counterparts. In short, all the functionalities available for VPSs running on LXC engines are seamlessly accessible with KVM engines as well.

Leveraging OCI for Endless Possibilities

The Open Container Initiative (OCI) opens the doors to a world of possibilities. It’s an open format for distributing and running software services, enabling your clients to host a richer range of ready-to-run services on SERVERware. 

Whether it’s web servers, databases, or VOIP services like PBXware, OCI empowers you to expand your service offerings and support your operations more efficiently.

Streamlined Service Delivery

The ability to switch to KVM virtualization per VPS offers enhanced security and isolation for applications, making it perfect for security-focused businesses. 

By providing a secure hosting environment and isolating applications, potential security vulnerabilities can be prevented from spreading. This enables you to cater to a broader range of clients and their unique security needs.

Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Enterprises can leverage SERVERware’s infrastructure features to create hybrid cloud solutions that can run both containerized and non-containerized workloads. 

This flexibility allows for more efficient resource utilization and cost savings, making SERVERware a versatile choice for businesses of all sizes.

Unleash the Potential

In summary, SERVERware 4.5’s KVM as VPS Engines feature is your ticket to unleashing your UC provider potential. 

With enhanced security, seamless functionality, and endless possibilities, you can attract a broader client base and grow your UC provider business like never before.
