“Creating new plans to support PVC 4.6 and CentOS and Debian Linux allows us to dramatically improve our hosting services,” said Darish Rajanayagam, Director of Operations at “By leveraging the features included in Virtuozzo for Linux, we are able to maximize the potential of our physical devices, fitting more virtual machines in each server. The upgrade also allows us to upgrade our server management and monitoring services, making it easier to meet customer needs with a powerful VPS plan.”

The new Disk I/O features of Virtuozzo Containers provides the ability to enforce and monitor Disk I/O operations, which will improve overall I/O performance, ensuring the operations of one container do not impact the performance of other containers.

With Power Panel, our VPS users can make extensive changes to the core attributes of their VPS plans, such as adjusting the distribution of system resources on the virtual device, reboot, shut down and perform other management tasks on the server without the assistance of a technician.”
