wow I am really surprised to see this, I didn't think that cPanel was going to start pushing people towards cloudlinux especially given it's lack of support for many virtualization technologies.

The only virtualization technologies known to not be supported by CloudLinux are OpenVZ, Virtuozzo (both of which are paravirtualization rather than so-called "true" virtualization) and 32-bit Xen. The other virtual technologies we support are accommodated:

Re: [Case 44285] Suspend upon excessive CPU usage

It just seems strange to me that You support paravirtualization then roll out a major feature that the community has been asking about for years and it doesn't work under your supported platforms.

Are there any plans on supporting paravirtualization in the future?

Do you still plan to add what was requested here without CloudLinux?

On the cPanel side of things, I cannot think of any reason why we wouldn't support it in an environment once CloudLinux can be reliably installed into those environments.

CloudLinux looks like they're already planning on supporting this, FAQ
