The WebPal Cloud uses KVM, or Kernel-based Vistual Machines, as its hypervisor technology.
KVM is an open-source hypervisor that allows businesses to run multiple virtual machines on a single host machine. KVM is a type 1 hypervisor, which means that it runs directly on the host machine's hardware and provides direct access to hardware resources, such as the CPU, memory, and storage.
One of the key differences between KVM and other hypervisors, such as VMware and Hyper-V, is that KVM is built into the Linux kernel. This means that it provides a seamless integration with Linux-based operating systems and is optimized for performance on Linux-based platforms.
Another difference between KVM and other hypervisors is its support for a wide range of guest operating systems. KVM supports not only Linux-based guest operating systems but also Windows, macOS, and various other operating systems. This makes KVM a versatile hypervisor that can be used to support a variety of business needs and applications.
Additionally, KVM is known for its strong security features. KVM uses a number of security technologies, such as SELinux and AppArmor, to provide enhanced security for virtual machines running on the hypervisor. This makes KVM a good choice for businesses that need to run sensitive applications or store sensitive data on their virtual infrastructure.
In summary, KVM is a versatile and secure open-source hypervisor that provides businesses with a powerful virtualization solution. Its integration with Linux-based operating systems, support for a wide range of guest operating systems, strong security features, and cost-effectiveness make KVM an excellent choice for businesses that need a reliable and flexible virtualization platform.
