Parallels Hypervisor gives you the flexibility to create virtual machines for customers who prefer to deploy and maintain a variety of operating systems. Delivering both operating system and hardware virtualization technologies in a single solution provides you the freedom to choose the most efficient technology needed for each virtual server.
Learn more about all the new virtualization features and benefits in Parallels Cloud Server.
Deploy containers and hypervisors on the same physical server, maximizing hardware efficiency and minimizing maintenance costs.
Eliminates service outages for end users during system updates
The vzup2date utility has been replaced with the standard yum utility, greatly simplifying the procedure of updating all components of your system.
Create virtual machines with up to 32 CPU cores, 128 GB of RAM, and 5 TB of virtual disk space.
Support for Open vSwitch, a multi-layer software network switch that functions as a virtual switch, providing virtual machines with network connectivity
Controls the CPU features available to virtual machines enabling live migration between servers with different CPU feature sets
Enables an encrypted password for end users during virtual machine provisioning
Allows easy management of LVM
What is the difference between containers and hypervisors?
Two types of virtualization in use today include hardware virtualization (generally known as hypervisors) and operating system virtualization (commonly referred to as containers).
Replicates system resources on all virtual servers. Multiple copies of system resources, however, results in overhead on the server of up to 20%. Overhead reduces the ratios of virtual servers per physical server as well as overall system performance.
Operating System Virtualization
By virtualizing at the host operating system, Parallels Containers provides a common virtualization layer that allocates system resources across all virtual servers, called containers. The result is a leaner, more efficient virtualization layer with an overhead of only 2%. This translates into higher ratios of virtual servers to physical servers, near-native server performance and unique advantages for management of the virtual environment.

Can I deploy hypervisors and containers on the same physical node?
Yes. Parallels Cloud Server allows you to specify the number of hypervisors and containers that you can deploy on the hardware node.
Can I deploy Windows VPS offerings using Parallels Hypervisor?
Yes. Parallels Cloud Server allows you to deploy Windows within the hypervisor enabling Windows VPS offerings that can leverage the high reliability enabled with Parallels Cloud Server.
