The right solution is key to a good business strategy..
The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and overall hardware-resource utilization. With virtualization, several operating systems (OSs) can be run in parallel on a single CPU without any glitch. This tends to lower overhead costs of the company concerned.
VPS or VM
Zimondo uses opensource technology to provide two virtualization solutions.
Virtual Private Server (VPS/VC)
OpenVZ is container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated Linux containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server.
A VPS/VC can only run Linux based operating systems

Hypervisor Virtual Machine (VM)
A hypervisor, is one of many hardware virtualization techniques allowing multiple operating systems, termed guests, to run concurrently on a host computer. It is so named because it is conceptually one level higher than a supervisory program. Hypervisors are very commonly installed on server hardware, with the function of running guest operating systems, that themselves act as servers.
A VM can run Linux based and Windows based operating systems

Choosing the right virtualization partner
- High performance servers
All virtual solutions is hosted on high scaled clustered hardware, we only use RAID10 for maximum performance
- High capacity connections
Sweden is known for its high capacity internet - our servers is hosted in Piteå, the town next to Luleå where Facebook is building their new hosting center
- Better security
All of our servers is protected by double layer firewall's and active intrusion detection and prevention systems.
- Secure location
Sweden have world-known rules when it comes to data security - your data is not only stored at one of the most secure locations in Europe its also projected by some of the best laws.
