cgroups (abbreviated from control groups) is a Linux kernel feature that limits, accounts for, and isolates the resource usage (CPU, memory, disk I/O, network, etc.) of a collection of processes.
CloudLinux OS is a Linux distribution marketed to shared hosting providers.
Codeanywhere is a cross-platform cloud IDE (integrated development environment) created by Codeanywhere, Inc.
These tables compare free software / open-source operating systems.
Platform virtualization software, specifically emulators and hypervisors, are software packages that emulate the whole physical computer machine, often providing multiple virtual machines on one physical platform.
Checkpoint/Restore In Userspace, or CRIU (pronounced kree-oo), is a software tool for the Linux operating system.
Hardware virtualization is the virtualization of computers as complete hardware platforms, certain logical abstractions of their componentry, or only the functionality required to run various operating systems.
HyperVM was a multi-tiered, multi-server, multi-virtualization software product allowing a Virtual private server (VPS) vendor to provision, manage and delegate Xen- or OpenVZ-based virtual private servers.
KernelCare is a live kernel patching service that provides security patches and bugfixes for a range of popular Linux kernels that can be installed without rebooting the system.
Ksplice is an open-source extension of the Linux kernel that allows security patches to be applied to a running kernel without the need for reboots, avoiding downtimes and improving availability (a technique broadly referred to as dynamic software updating).
libvirt is an open-source API, daemon and management tool for managing platform virtualization.
Linux containers is a generic term for an implementation of operating system-level virtualization for the Linux operating system.
Linux kernel-based operating systems have been widely adopted in a very wide range of uses.
Live migration refers to the process of moving a running virtual machine or application between different physical machines without disconnecting the client or application.
LXC (Linux Containers) is an operating-system-level virtualization method for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a control host using a single Linux kernel.
Meltdown is a hardware vulnerability affecting Intel x86 microprocessors, IBM POWER processors, and some ARM-based microprocessors.
nanoHUB.org is a science and engineering gateway comprising community-contributed resources and geared toward educational applications, professional networking, and interactive simulation tools for nanotechnology.
openQRM is a free and open-source cloud computing management platform for managing heterogeneous data center infrastructures.
On Unix-like systems, OpenRC is a dependency-based init.
Operating-system-level virtualization, also known as containerization, refers to an operating system feature in which the kernel allows the existence of multiple isolated user-space instances.
Proxmox Virtual Environment (Proxmox VE) is an open-source server virtualization environment.
Sabayon Linux or Sabayon (formerly RR4 Linux and RR64 Linux), is a Gentoo-based Italian Linux distribution created by Fabio Erculiani and the Sabayon development team.
The Turnkey Linux Virtual Appliance Library is a free open source project which has developed a range of Debian-based pre-packaged server software appliances (a.k.a. virtual appliances).
User-mode Linux (UML) enables multiple virtual Linux kernel-based operating systems (known as guests) to run as an application within a normal Linux system (known as the host).
In computing, a virtual machine (VM) is an emulation of a computer system.
Virtuozzo is a privately held software company, specializing in virtualization software.
VMmanager is a commercial Linux-based Server virtualization software control panel or type II OpenVZ / KVM hypervisor.
AIX Workload partitions (WPARs) are a software implementation of operating system-level virtualization technology introduced in the IBM's AIX 6.1 operating system that provides application environment isolation and resource control.
