Techcity Cloud Virtual Environment is based on Debian GNU/Linux and uses a custom Linux Kernel.
Using Techcity Cloud software guarantees full access to all functionality, as well as a high level of reliability and security.
Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)
KVM is the industry-leading Linux virtualization technology for full virtualization. It’s a kernel module, that’s merged into the mainline Linux kernel, and it runs with near-native performance on all x86 hardware with virtualization support—either Intel VT-x or AMD-V.
With KVM you can run both Windows and Linux in virtual machines (VMs), where each VM has private, virtualized hardware: a network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc. Running several applications in VMs on a single system, enables you to save power and reduce costs, while at the same time, giving you the flexibility to build an agile and scalable software-defined data center, that meets your business demands.
Techcity Cloud has included KVM support since the beginning of the project.
Container-based virtualization technology is a lightweight alternative to full machine virtualization, because it shares the host system’s kernel.
Linux Containers (LXC)
LXC is an operating-system-level virtualization environment for running multiple, isolated Linux systems on a single Linux control host. LXC works as a userspace interface for the Linux kernel containment features. Users can easily create and manage system or application containers with a powerful API and simple tools.
