setting up website hosting

I have been asked by a friend to look into setting up a hosting solution I am a vmware guy but as its to costly (verses open source) for this project I have been looking a linux virtualization , qemo-lvm, openvs, virtualbox

What guest os support is there we need linux(ubuntu) but I think also windows server 2003/2008?


I have heard that there is a remote client similar to viclient?

I know we will need scripts for a lot but they are all over the web so I dont think that will be an issue!

If the KVM works like a VMWare hyper visor, then it should work just fine.

I meant with ispconfig3 i did notice on the control panel there is a virtual machine icon does that mean it can communicate to the kvm for creating virtual machines ?

I am not familiar with the KVM environment, I do know it works with OpenVZ

All it needs a is module to be installed so the ISPConfig can communicate with it.

I would like to  give KVM a bash and test it, maybe I will set it up over the weekend.
