    Which virtualization do you prefer when looking for a VPS Hosting provider? Or which do you currently use on your own setup.

    Always been a fan of XEN over OpenVZ it has a more real feel to it.

    I am on OpenVZ.
    Xen is not really needed unless you really want to have 100% secured resources to yourself.
    I think OpenVZ is perfect, just don't abuse it.

    Even in such cases, it's not 100% though. Remember that ;)

    I prefer OpenVZ since you can oversell it. Overselling in my case wasn't making servers slow, note that too.

    OpenVZ will work faster and also very easy to install and manage, no special configuration needed, templates can download free,

    with xen, install it and create virtual disk and buy templates and install and configure it take much time.

    I am on Xen.
    I prefer Xen for it's secured resources to myself. As OpenVZ is Linux only type so I use Xen.

    In my opinion Xen is user friendly and provide more security than openVZ.

    HostiServer favours Xen to be a better option, all our plans are Xen based.

    If you don`t have enough skills on server administration, it`s enough to have an openVZ

    I'm openVZ all the way personally. I wouldn't necessarily say because it's better than Xen, it's just what I happened to learn when first starting with Linux administration :)
