VPS

Postby Danni » 22. Apr 2010, 05:44

I could not find any VPS Qustions, so here I go.

Using Debian as main host, and difrent linux system as guest, and 1 windows system as testing.
The goal is to make a VPS, running multiplied Debian guest systems in 1 Debian host, and so on.

But some qustions came in mind.
1: Can i free of charge make a VPS with vbox without, and earn money from the custumor, that buyes a VPS from me?
2: How do i setup the system as VPS, so i can reach the guest system from WAN?

More qustions will come later on.

Thanks in advance.

PS. I could not find any documentation on the net, if you have any "How To" manuals, please link me.

VPS's are more like container/chroot/jail systems than virtualisation systems - they share the same kernel and just divide up disk/cpu/net, virtualbox would have too much overhead as it would load multiple kernels.

you'd be better off with openvz (a free version of parallels virtuozzo) for what you need.

Hey again.

I've read your answard (Spell for me??) the day you wrote it, and been working on openVZ for some time now.
But now i found out that i need virtualbox, so ASP/Windows developers can develop ASP on Windows Guest System.

But, how do i reach the vBox guest system from the internet, when im using debian as host?

Thanks in advance, any help is apriciated.

The docs you have found "Advanced Network settings for Linux" correspond to VirtualBox v1.3.x
VirtualBox v3.2.x is much more advanced than that.

Just use "bridged" networking.
bridge your guest OS eth0 to host's eth0. (in GUI: VM->sttings->network)
If you have multiple VMs, just bridge em' all to host's eth0 and you're done.

Another OpenVZ's useful feature is to send commands directly from host to guest.
VirtualBox supports some of this. See User Manual, section "4.7 Guest control"

OpenVZ is good technology, but it needs much better distro integration to be more useful for some workloads. (remote virtual desktops)
