I use both, but mostly KVM as I run a lot of non Linux systems (BSD, Windows, etc)
If somebody agree that KVM is higher than OpenVZ is because they ignore that OpenVZ is higher in certain areas to KVM, for example gameserver or asterisk server (in witch the timing is too important and critical).I agree.
At first I used vmware esxi but I was not satisfied because the game server that I sold demonstrating the lag, so it is that the players had stopped buying them. Since I use Proxmox my clients are fully satisfied. Except that Windows needs to KVM, all my virtual machines are based on OpenVZ because they take up less ram and are faster.The issue here is supporting OpenVZ is holding KVM back.
