    Question Xen or KVM?

    Hi Guys,

    My servers all built now and I need to decide if I'm going to run my VMs in Xen or KVM, as I'm new to this Id appreciate your help. I'm going run my media serving apps in Docker if I can ever figure it out lol.

    Which would you choose and why?

    Why not use Hyper-V?

    Personally my favourite is VMware ESXi - these days I'm constantly consulting on Hyper-V issues the likes of which I never see with ESXi!

    Xen is what Amazon use though, or at least a forked version I believe. Need to get my certification sorted in that ASAP really!

    Only reason I went for Xen is because it's integrated into UnRAID 6
