After dabbling with a variety of different virtualisation technologies over the last 2 years we’ve launched a Virtual Private Server (or VPS) offering based on VMware ESX server.
We’ve chosen ESX server for a number of reasons not to mention the ability to perform a sufficient level of monitoring on the host system and have the virtual machines behave in just about every respect the same as a traditional dedicated server would.
A VPS can offer a more affordable step between shared web hosting and dedicated servers but it also creates a more flexible hosting environment. Additional resources can be added to a server with as little effort as a reboot, and they can be added rapidly (hours vs days) in the event that increased performance is needed at short notice.
