    Hi

    I just saw, that cpanel is working with the following VPS solutions:


    Linux-VServer
    User-Mode Linux
    FreeVPS
    ServerXchange®
    Virtual IronTM
    VirtuozzoTM
    VMware® Server, ESX Server
    XenEnterpriseTM, XenExpressTM, XenServerTM

    Which one works best, or is recommended?

    Michael

    I'm not sure that any one of them works 'best', more so I would say it depends on what type of solution you're going for and what kind of needs you have.

    Personally I run Virtuozzo and have had a lot of success thus far, although cPanel runs the same under any virtual environment (provided that the underlying OS is supported).

    I've seen this happen on VEs with small amounts of memory allocation (256-284) but I have a number of successful clients running on 512MB (1GB burst but they never use it) and don't have issues.

    I run my main shared hosting server inside a VE that has 768MB guaranteed and 1.5GB burst which it rarely uses, it hosts approximatley 200 sites some with heavy forum traffic and I've occassionally had issues with killed processes, but this was generally due to node memory issues which were my fault. It's also strange how Virtuozzo doesn't swap much, or at least on my boxes it never seems to but yet occassionally will kill processes. I've only had this happen on boxes with only 2GB RAM and had 2-3 large VEs.
