The Technology Behind VPS

Brand New Hardware

In Contabo we have almost 20 years of experience in running VPS, so we know what type of hardware guarantees long lasting and stable performance. Looking at our prices you might be surprised to learn that we use only brand new high-quality components from companies like Intel, AMD and Samsung. No matter we pay more for that type of hardware, it offers greater stability and performance while running virtualization, so it's a better choice for host systems than cheap alternatives.

Secrets of Virtualization

Apart from hardware used, the orchestration of virtualization is what makes a difference in VPS performance. Our virtualization is based on KVM and Proxmox, which have a longstanding track record as stable and reliable technologies. On top of that, we have proprietary technology we use to optimize the utilization of each host system. We constantly monitor the load and we cluster together VPS with different usage patterns.
