An operational adventure...

In my lovely adventure to build a hosting service with a buddy, I’ve been researching various operating systems for a good virtualization platform. Of course, I’ve run across ESXi and XenServer (which are both awesome, mind you), but I’ve decided I want to go a different way with this – I want to use KVM. There have been some absolutely stellar benchmarks performed by awesome people that prove that KVM is so much more performant than XenServer and sits extremely close to bare-metal speeds.
