Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is an operating system virtualization solution that maximizes your investment in server hardware. Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is uniquely suited to Cloud server virtualization, enabling near instant provisioning and on-the-fly modification of hosting and Cloud server plans while delivering maximum density, cost efficiency and application performance.
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers delivers three times more virtual servers than hypervisor solutions providing greater utilization of existing infrastructure.
Centralized management enables fast operating system (OS) updates and upgrades. Make changes once and quickly replicate to an entire datacenter.
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers enables near-native server performance, delivering maximum application performance and scalability for a given virtual CPU configuration.
Rapid provisioning means new Servers can be available within minutes of ordering, and servers are "instant on" when provisioned with no OS boot up time. Customer self-service panels enable existing OS containers to be scaled on the fly with real-time adjustments to CPU, memory and disk space allocations.
With Parallels Virtuozzo Containers service providers can deploy a super-efficient Cloud hosting infrastructure and offer a wide range of hosting and Cloud services that appeal to the broadest possible customer base. Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is optimized to work with all Parallels hosting and Cloud enablement solutions including Parallels Plesk Panel, Parallels Automation and Parallels Business Automation Standard.

Virtualization at the host operating system provides a lean, efficient virtualization layer that enables higher density ratios of virtual servers to physical servers. With Parallels Virtuozzo Containers you can increase the utilization of existing servers by 3x over hypervisor solutions, delivering cost savings not only in maintenance and energy costs but also by reducing new server expenditures.
Linux Containers can be deployed as a component of Parallels Cloud Server. This provides you the option of deploying virtual servers based on Linux containers as well as Parallels Hypervisors for those applications where the customer prefers to manage their own operating system.
Linux Containers deployed using Parallels Cloud Server can also take advantage of high availability, high performance Parallels Cloud Storage.
Change the cost equation of delivering Windows VPS and cloud servers by maximizing hardware utilization and simplifying day-to-day management.
High availability Windows containers increase quality and reduce churn and operational costs. Parallels Containers for Windows can be deployed together with Parallels Cloud Server and Parallels Cloud Storage to enable high density, high availability Windows containers.
While containers provide the highest density virtualized servers, some service providers choose to deploy Windows VPS services using hypervisor technology to allow their customers to maintain and manage their own Windows operating system. Parallels Cloud Server includes Parallels Hypervisor which can be used to provide high performance Windows VMs. Parallels Hypervisor uses Parallels Cloud Storage to deliver high availability Windows VMs.
Hosted applications services such as those that support web or application workloads benefit from the isolation, density and performance enhancements delivered with Parallels Containers for Windows virtualization. Hosted applications require application isolation combined with high server densities to support a successful business model, which can be fulfilled through the use of templates as well as the management toolsets that arrive come with Parallels Containers for Windows.
Containers-based virtualization is well-suited for hosted desktop environments where many similar desktops are hosted on the same server. Containers also provide benefits in disk space and memory conservation in hosted desktop environments, erasing the need for massive horizontal scaling of resources to support large numbers of desktops. KDDI, one of the largest telecommunications providers in Japan, relies on Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to deliver hosted virtual desktops as a key component of its Multi Cloud brand of cloud services.
