The fastest virtualization technology is now available at ColossusCloud!
KVM, or Kernel-based Virtual Machine, is a full virtualization technology that combines Linux and virtualization tecnology built into Intel and AMD CPUs to allow a single hardware server to run multiple operating systems at a time. Each operating system, be it Windows or Linux, thinks that they are running in a physical machine by itself.
KVM's popular predecessor, Xen, used to be the de-facto standard, even for large cloud providers such as Amazon AWS. But KVM surpassed it in performance, flexibility and security. As of February of 2019, all new virtual servers at ColossusCloud are now deployed on KVM virtualization and not Xen.
Both Linux and Windows benefit greatly from KVM, specially in disk I/O operations. KVM's drivers for Linux and Windows are far more efficient than Xen's and allow for higher rates of data read and write. This is specially true for Windows, where KVM's drivers, called VirtIO, allow for Windows to perform many times faster than a Windows virtual server running under Xen.
