Most applications can be installed within the Virtual Private Servers without any modifications. Our customers are using Oracle, DB/2, Weblogic, Websphere, and other commercial applications quite successfully.
Applications and services do not have to be aware of Virtuozzo. However, direct access to the hardware is not available.

Applications are provided within VPS:
The core VPS applications are:
- the system log service;
- the shell;
- cron scheduler;
- OpenSSH support;
- mounting support;
- the random generator service;
- the Perl script and report language;
- various libraries installed and ready to use.
Additionally, you can install gcc/cpp compilers, http, php, Mysql, PostgreSQL, Sendmail, Samba, etc.
So, if needed, you can easily build a hosting system on your virtual server.
To install additional applications to a VPS:
Additional applications can be installed both by that VPS's root and the VPS host's root.
A VPS's root installs RPMs or compiles sources as a normal server's root.
The host's root can install RPMs using the rpm command with the "--root" option.
Or, if the sphere-vps package is installed, use the vps-pkg-inst.pl script.
Virtual Private Servers (VPS) offer many of the same benefits of a dedicated server. New and improved virtualization technology allows a single physical server to be split into completely separate logical servers.
By leveraging powerful servers, customers can make use of the fastest and most reliable systems with only a fraction of the cost. Dedicated resources are provisioned to each VPS, guaranteeing that one VPS cannot negatively impact another VPS.
Like a standalone server, each VPS runs with its own unique operating system environment, services, users, and applications.
All VPS packages are set up on powerful servers with Virtuozzo technology. Virtuozzo creates multiple isolated Virtual Private Servers (VPSes) on a single physical server to share hardware, licenses, and management effort with maximum efficiency.
Each VPS performs and executes exactly like a standalone server for its users and applications as it can be rebooted independently and has its own root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries, and configuration files.
The light overhead and efficient design of Virtuozzo make it the right virtualization choice for production servers with live applications and real-life data.
A base VPS package comes with the Linux operating system installed and configured for your use. A control panel is needed if you wish to maintain multiple websites, email accounts, stats, and other features with an easy-to-use web interface.
Direct Admin is easy to use and easy-to-learn web-based interface that allows you to control and manage hosting applications running on your dedicated or virtual server.
This backup service allows you to create up to two snapshots of your VPS at any moment through an easy-to-use web interface. The snapshots are stored on our server and can be used to recover your VPS in case of accidental data loss or a software problem.
