What is the virtualization technology used by VPSServer.com?

We use KVM aka Kernel-based Virtual Machines. The x86 contains virtualization extensions such as AMD-V and Intel VT. The Kernel-based Virtual Machines has kvm.ko, a loadable kernel module that gives the underlying virtualization infrastructure, and kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.ko, which is a processor-specific module. Kernel-based Virtual Machines allows us to have multiple virtual machines running unmodified Windows or Linux images. Each virtual machine comes with private virtualized hardware such as network cards and graphics adapters. Kernel-based Virtual Machines is open source architecture. The kernel component of the Kernel-based Virtual Machines is merged in the mainline of Linux (2.6.20.), Kernel-based Virtual Machines's userspace component is part of the mainline QEMU (1.3).
