KVM Clouds

| 1 Comment

I’ve noticed a few more KVM-based hosting/Cloud providers out there.

Most mass-market hosting services seem to be built with OpenVZ or Xen, but KVM is slowly gaining popularity. It has the advantage of being integrated into the standard Linux kernel, which (in theory) should reduce the integration work required by the hoster.

There is Elastichosts, CloudSigma and xotHost.

The only local company I know of using KVM is http://www.labyrinthdata.net.au/ in WA, but I’d love to hear about more.

Is KVM the way of the future for public Cloud computing? For starters, it has the advantage of being a pure open source project unencumbered by vendor interests.
