Wow Linode announced on their forums KVM Beta VPS hosting Linode Forum :: Linode KVM (beta) !
Going to be interesting to see how it performs compared to their xen hosts and DigitalOcean's KVM.
So enlighten me on this. Is there a purpose, or a good reason to use a high end VPS as a host machine for a number of KVM instances? Wouldn't a dedicated server make more sense? Or am I missing the boat on this?
Or is the point that their VPS nodes they offer to customers can now be KVM virtualized instances, rather than Xen?
I don't mind sharing my ignorance of virtualization platforms.
yeah i think KVM > Xen so in time
? i think they're dedicated servers used for KVM host machine, not VPS within a VPS.
Oh, I get it now. They are offering (and eventually switching?) from Xen virtualization to KVM virtualization.
I didn't realize that there could be such a difference in performance between the different flavors.
Are there any advantages that Xen provides that KVM doesn't have?
maybe infographics at will help Hypervisor 101 Infographic | VMWare, Hyper-V, KVM, Xen, VirtualBox
bit that matters
KVM > XEN for max ram per VM or per host
oh and Performance benchmarks: KVM vs. Xen - major.io
Linode with KVM. Wow, thanks for nice information you have here.
In my opinion, KVM has many advantages in terms of business for Linode. Higher max RAM is always one interesting thing for any VPS provider. Other advantage would be bigger market with Windows support. As we know XEN PV is not compatible with Windows.
ah yes windows support - something us CentOS folks forget about
Linode KVM (beta) - Update 2
Linode Forum :: Linode KVM (beta) - Update 2
Their making pretty fast progress on it
I'm using it now, Live server.
1 x 4GB Nginx/PHP
1 x 2GB Mysql/Memcached
All Singapore server and using KVM .
Converting a 4GB plan takes 7 minutes only.
what do you mean conversting ? from Xen to KVM ?
Yes, on your Linode at the sidebar bottom part, you can see it.
I didn't loss any data.
I have the option to covert also. Anyone done it? I would hate for something to go wrong...
I've done it on two of my Linode/all Production Server.
2GB plan takes 3 minutes and 4GB plan takes 7 minutes.
looks like Linode KVM is out of beta now Linode - 12th Birthday for Linode - KVM VPS out of beta ! | Centmin Mod Community

My forum on Linode was a little slow this morning so I migrated, so far so good. It took around 9 mins.
nice.. i didn't migrate, i setup a new KVM Linode out of box for my Piwik Stats server
Bringing up a new linode was plan B if the migration failed...
