While choosing a VPS hosting solution, it must be kept in mind that there should practically be no downtime or crashing of website or the trading terminal. In such a case, it may lead to interruption in Forex trading and also cause huge monetary loss for the traders. Let’s now check out the different virtualisation technologies available currently.
Virtualization Technology Types Available
Currently there are two kinds of virtualization technologies available:
- The first one is by Parallels Company, whose offering is known as Virtuozzo. When it comes to Windows VPS hosting, this is the solution that is used by 95 per cent of the market. It consists software layer virtualization. However, there is one problem regarding this and it is the non-dedicated nature. This non-dedicated hosting nature makes most hosting company to oversell the server. If you are serious about launching Forex trading business and earn money out of it, it is recommended to avoid this technology. The usual practice that has been seen in this kind of Windows VPS hosting solution is that a hosting company receives a server having 8GB RAM but sells hundreds of virtual spaces to customers with 32GB total RAM.
- The second technological solution is the preferred one when it comes to running Forex trading platform. It is known as Hyper-V from Microsoft. This is a hardware layer virtualization and was introduced only in Windows Server 2008. If you want to launch your Forex trading business, choosing Hyper-V will be the prudent solution in case you are looking for Windows VPS hosting solution. However, it must be said here that Hyper-V is costlier than Virtuozzo.
