Why do lesser number of providers offer OpenVZ these days?
Some seasoned providers like SecureDragon have openly said that OpenVZ still sells more for them then why do we see a decline in number of providers offering OpenVZ these days
- KVM provides more isolation & ability to run own kernel but does everyone need own kernel?
- Security vulnerabilities which got discovered in OpenVZ a few years ago but almost everything we run these days including the processors have vulnerabilities
- It could also be because IP addresses have become expensive & only those who own large IP space can afford to provide it? Because number of OpenVZ containers running on a node are much more than a KVM node with same hardware
- LXC has become part of mainline kernel?
Isn't it more difficult to keep abuse under check in bare metal virtualization like KVM whereas in OpenVZ it only takes a script like Nodewatch to do it?
Would do you guys think? Would love to hear from providers & users both
