Vmware Based VPS Hosting

Feb 8, 2006

I've been investigating and testing Xen for a few months in order to add Xen VPS to the hosting services I have available. With the recent news re: VMware Server, and my experience with VMware, I've started to look, and easily prefer, using this product over Xen. Has anyone else started to look at it as a possible alternative for hosting purposes?

Hosting A LAN Using VMWAre

Oct 5, 2009

Does anyone think this is feasable? For instance, we all see web servers hosted in the "cloud", as well as pay per user exchange and other mail servers.

Now, what if I wanted to host all my servers (web, email, file, domain controller, and several application servers) at a data center using Vmware.

I did some research and found out that the cost of creating a private cloud (VMWARE licensing alone) would be prohibitive. Is there a way to rent/lease a "private cloud"? Or perhaps I would not even mind if we shared space with others on the server(s) on a "public cloud".

Any ideas on if VPS (or other types of) hosters that could provide this service?

Is A Pentium 4 3.0 GHz Good Enough For Hosting 2 VMWare VM's?

May 2, 2009

I have a DNS server in another datacenter and I'm considering moving my own website to that server, so we'll be online and can receive e-mails when the network is down.

We are considering making 2 virtual machines on that server. 1 for Secundary DNS and 1 for Plesk-hosting for the homepage. Both cannot be on the same server if we wanted to, because they conflict.

SuperMicro Server, Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, 3GB, 2x80GB RAID(1) for hosting 2 Virtual Machines on VMWare Server 2, CentOS 5. One of which with Plesk.

Can I expect a 100% uptime with low load? I am not planning to increase capacity requirements on the server as no additional sites/services with be hosted.

Using Virtuozzo Instead Of VMware For A Non-hosting Application

Sep 1, 2008

A friend of mine is looking to develop a pretty extensive and complex website and would like to be able to use something similar to VMWare server, but doesn't want to be locked into VMware and needing to find a small fortune just to build out his application should either VMware start charging for VMware Server or having to move up to one of their high-end high-cost solutions.

I know with Virtuozzo the licensing fees are reasonably low, but does anyone have any experience using it outside of the hosting industry?

Does the software lend itself well to being used by a single client who is not using it to sell VPSs?

Shared Hosting That Allows VMware Or Root Installation

Jun 15, 2008

I want to do 2-3 Deki Wiki installs, each on their own domain. This is the Deki Wiki install page that contains details about their installs:


I have HostGator reseller hosting now, and am very pleased with it. But, their setup does not allow me to install VMWare or root installations. This is the message I received from HostGator support:
Dear Customer,
We do not allow VMWare installation on our reseller servers, and do not support it (although it is allowed) on dedicated servers. In this case, you would need to go with the CentOS option, which is the operating system we run. However, according to the install information at http://wiki.mindtouch.com/Official_M...e_Installation we cannot allow this installation on our reseller servers.

This product requires mono and requires the installation of the deki wiki at the server root, neither of which we allow on reseller machines.

The only option to run Deki Wiki is to upgrade to a dedicated server solution.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

I am looking for a very low-cost way to do this, not a dedicated server. Please post if you know of a host. Cpanel is preferred but not required if you have something equally user-friendly. If you know of one who offers free installation of Deki Wiki, that would be an added plus. I am looking to host at least 2 and maybe more domains in the future.

Is there also a subforum where I can post an RFP and receive offers?

RAM Based Hosting

Apr 22, 2009

We've tried before several times RAM based hosting (where you have all files on RAM disk). Our systems were crashing, but my guess is that we were putting about 100,000 or so files on it and since it was formatted with ext3 (everywhere else we are using XFS) - this was a reason for crashing.

Since we have a lot of bandwdith in our data center, we are thinking about becoming a mirror for CentOS, gOS and some other distributions. I am thinking again about using RAM disk based hosting (you use 1 Gb/s port 100% no problem with it even on CoreDuo level of CPU).

Anybody has any experince, good or bad of running RAM based hosting? I am talking about dedicated, not VPS environment.

Hosting Decision Based On Speed

Aug 30, 2008

Well I think that I have finally narrowed down my choices to three different possible hosts (leaving room for more suggestions of course)

But I was wondering based on speed - which host would you suggest. I would like to have mp3s load up and start playing as fast as possible.

The choices I was considering were:


As for whether to go with a shared or a reseller package, I am still unsure. But it seems that Hostgator offers a huge shared package - I am hoping to keep the cost of all this down to $7 - $10 a month.

Good Hosting Site For A Joomla Based Environment?

Jun 3, 2008

my friend and i are working on some web-based-commerce ideas and at current we're at godaddy.com. i can only imagine the vitriol they've rightfully earned here, as we decided to be done with them when the $30 SSL license they told us we could get one night quickly became $78 because there was a new "turboSSL server" package we needed, nevermind the guy the first time said with our hosting options we only needed to go through them for the SSL license, so basically, either the first guy lied to us or the second guy tried to hustle us, either way, i dont like companies whose sales model is revealed like the plot in a horror movie, so we're looking to go elsewhere.

basically we're looking for a virtual private server setup, although actually another question i'd love to ask someone is if joomla is better served on unix/linux or windows, with a few dozen accounts needed, and by accounts i mean domains and whatnot, as right now it's basically the blanket idea that you grab the names you need, or might go to if you change your mind on company names...

so basically, with all the people here talking about bad experiences with places, are there any good experience type places where someone can get competent tech support, no hustling in sales pitches, and quality service at a nice solid price?

again, sorry to show up and start asking for things, but i'm not necessarily well versed in these arts yet... rest assured once i have some information i shall contribute to the community and help others who are in my position now

VMware Server

Nov 3, 2006

Does anyone here use VMware server on a dedicated server to run Windows or other OS? And in terms of IP address how would this work? Do you need to set the VM as being NATed, or does it have it's own external IP? In terms of performance on a typical 100$-200$/mo dedicated server, how good is it? All these factors depend on a lot of things and I realize that, though. (what apps run, etc)

And do server providers even allow to install something like this? I've never leased a dedicated server before but I'm thinking of getting a linux one, but also running a windows VM for a RunUO server, and unfortunately that only runs in windows. I want a linux server as I prefer LAMP for hosting, and I'd try to get a few clients on the server just so I can pay it off monthly. Also Linux servers are generally cheaper monthly and I like the idea of using SSH tunnels rather then straight RDP, which gives me chills just thinking of, from a security perspective.

XenServer Or VMWare

Aug 18, 2009

Not to start a flamewar, but I was curious about real world scenarios, and peoples experience with and recommendations for either.

I have been asked to plan out a smallish virtualization environment (10-12 Dell hosts, iSCSI Equalogic backend), and when reviewing the cost of going with VMWare over Citrix, I can't seem to justify the costs. I figure since Amazon runs on Xen, it must be pretty decent, but am I missing something?
