    I was looking for a really cheap vps and someone suggested ramnode. the virtualization called openvz seems to
    have some downsides compared to kvm. has anyone tried the cheap openvz option and what version of linux did you use if so?

    Really the only down side would be if they over sell the VPS servers. If they do over sell then yes you would want a KVM so you dont have to worry about having resources when you need them.

    OpenVZ VPS should be used for non-critical tasks only. You should use KVM VPS instead.

    Excuse me guys but will have to disagree with both of you.
    KVM can and is easy to be oversold same as OpenVZ it is just a myth that can't be oversold (google for more info).

    "OpenVZ VPS should be used for non-critical tasts only. You should use KVM VPS instead".

    Don't take it personal @doanhtien but you really should do your homework or still have not find the right hosting provider.
    OpenVZ perform better than KVM VPS and there is thousands of benchmarks proving that.

    What you should worry is :
    - Is your provider overselling his nodes?
    - Is your provider offering XXGB of RAM with XXXXGB of SSD for $5-10?
    - What are the CPU cores speed? ( have you even wonder why almost all providers keep hidden the actual Ghz of the cores? All that they are saying is that you will get X core per plan but on what speed? 0.5Ghz? 1.2Ghz? 3.4Ghz??)
    - What is the RAM type ? ( same as CPU ... RAM DDR2 , DDR3 , DDR4 etc, you know that DDR3 is way faster than DDR2 right?).
    - XXX Bandwidth on what speed? ( 15Mbps, 50Mbps , 100Mbps or 200Mbps? You know the different right?).
    - SSD storage ( what are the SSD disks? there are cheap SSD with almost same performance with BHDD).

    After long research and testings with different providers I decide to go with https://www.linuxssdvps.com Offshore & OpenVZ. hosting 16 websites with total daily traffic of 120k unique visitors and if that is "non-critical" then what to say for my other VPS hosting World of Warcraft server with ~300-1200 players online 24/7. Wanna know when was my last downtime? Before 3 months when I had to reboot for applying new configurations.

    Its all about :
    a) Money
    b) Quality
    c) Good research.


    The good thing with hosting providers is that there is unlimited number of them and you can just test/fail until you find the one who is suitable for your needs.

    So to answer your question OP . Feel free to order from RamNode for one month . If you like it.. keep it.. if you don't keep going :)

    Friendly,

    In the world of hosting, I dont say all but "almost all" providers oversell OpenVZ VPS, that's why it's cheaper than KVM VPS. I agree that KVM VPS can be oversold too, but in term of Memory/RAM only. Most providers use Nodewatch for OpenVZ nodes, they set some limits on each VM, when you reach that limit, you will be suspended, sooner or later. It's good to know that you are happy with your current provider, but I gave my best advice to the OP so he can decide.

    Well you are right about all of that and it is refreshing to see some real information about VPS here, but in the end if you really want to be sure you just have to get a dedicated server.

    I've been using Open SVZ for a couple of years (512 MB RAM) with no downtime at only $5 per month. The support is super fast.
    Before trying it, I was looking in lowendbox and tried some providers but this one is the best!
