Difference between Hyper-V and Virtuozzo

Hyper-V and Virtuozzo are prime competitors in Virtual Private Server World. Lets check major points you need to consider before choosing one of these Virtualization platforms.

5. Hyper-V is best for enterprise server on which cost is not a concern. Theoretically, Hyper-V is very stable when it comes to dedicated resources as you are not sharing RAM or CPU with other VPS avoiding server uptime issues.
