    I don't think there is better one, any virtualization platform brings its own features and disadvantages

    Hello Fli,

    I hope you are doing well!

    OpenVZ is a popular open-source virtualization technology that was created in 2002. It is a highly lightweight virtualization platform that runs on Linux servers. OpenVZ uses a single large file to store the entire virtualized environment, which makes it fast and efficient. XEN is a newer virtualization technology that was created in 2008. It is also open-source and runs on Linux servers. However, Xen is different from other virtualization technologies because it uses a transaction-based memory management model. As a result, each process has its own memory space, making it faster and more efficient than traditional virtualization models.

    OpenVZ and XEN virtualization are two popular virtualization platforms. They differ in a few key areas, but the main difference is that OpenVZ is based on a single kernel while XEN uses a Xen hypervisor. This means that OpenVZ is more lightweight and efficient than XEN. Additionally, OpenVZ supports better security features than XEN.

    I hope the above information will help you to understand the OpenVZ and Xen virtualization platforms.
