Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I am an old user of Linode and have a VPS with a few clients. I am looking at optimizing the speed and performance of it by doing an upgrade to KVM due to its benefits
    • 300% improvement in UnixBench score, with a KVM Linode vs a Xen Linode
    • 28% faster at compiling a Linux kernel with a KVM Linode vs a Xen Linode
    • Boot and shutdown times are greatly improved
Is KVM supported by cPanel and Litespeed without any issues?

Thanks!

We have a few servers using KVM virtualization running cPanel/CloudLinux/LiteSpeed with no issues.

Thanks! I might looking into adding CloudLinux later, it seems it's mostly for account control than anything. I just went ahead and did the upgrade to KVM and it went great, the server is up and running using less resources just as fast.
