It has been already nine years since we launched the first virtual server on the Linux V-Server platform. We have made big progress since. We changed virtual server parameters – needless to say that always for the client’s benefit – as well as the virtualization technology several times. Every change introduced slight inconsistencies into the virtualization structure, which we had to keep taking into account when updating the software. Finally, we decided to turn over a new leaf.
On the 1st of July 2011, we got rid of Xen in exchange for the currently used Red Hat KVM state-of-the-art virtualization technology. Unlike Xen, KVM runs on special hardware as a Linux kernel module, eliminating the need for a hypervisor. Therefore, KVM represents fully hardware-based virtualization that allows us to provide virtual servers featuring high performance, reliability, and especially various operating systems running on one virtualization server.
When we started with KVM almost five years ago, parameters of available virtual servers were approximately one quarter of the current ones, especially as for available operating memory.
The current VPS parameters differ substantially from the original ones. We also added dedicated servers, which are virtual servers with guaranteed low aggregation (no more than 1:3) per physical server.

Coolhousing’s current KVM-based virtual servers are more powerful, reliable, feature perfect backed-up connectivity thanks to a high-quality network, and last but not least, have Anti-DDoS protection with connection to the FENIX secure network.
And we have switched all our existing clients to these current parameters free of charge. If you do not have one of the current hardware configurations available on your VPS already, simply restart your server using the Controlpanel interface and the VPS parameters will update.
Lastly, let’s take a peek into the future. The virtual server market is currently being flooded with SSD configurations, and “Coolna” will not stay behind. Some of our clients have already been testing SSD virtual servers. Stay tuned!
