- Virtuozzo containers for Linux
Virtuozzo is able to lower Total Cost of Ownership and improve Return On Investment in many ways. For existing hardware it allows to utilize its processing power better by improving an average load from 3-5% to at least 30-50% while still providing ability to handle peak loads. To decrease complexity Virtuozzo provides standardized and centralized server management, logically decoupled from actual hardware. And when it's time to buy new servers you can now use a few more powerful servers instead of many little ones - with added benefits of better reliability, better peak performance and typically longer lifespan.
