Which virtualization method are we using?
We use a real full-virtualization, also known as bare-metal virtualization, for our virtual servers, which offers very high performance and security. In contrast to other virtualization products, you have an independent server instance, which completely isolates you from other customers.
Our full virtualization emulates a complete computer with virtual hardware, which can be addressed by the guest operating system like real hardware. Thereby, the layer of the guest operating system is dispensed with and the commands of the individual fully encapsulated virtual servers are forwarded directly to the hardware. Due to the fact that the commands are directly forwarded and do not have to be processed additionally, full virtualization has a very high performance. Therefore, you can also install and operate unmodified operating systems.
By default, we provide you with a large selection of Linux distributions and versions. You can also select from many versions for the operating system Windows.
