今天又收到了BandwagonHost发来的邮件,无法就是说一下我们搬瓦工(BandwagonHost)不在使用OpenVZ虚拟化或者说是OpenVZ 7虚拟化,我们要支持KVM!KVM虚拟化万岁! --BandwagonHost

然后现在BandwagonHost的全部套餐中只有KVM了,并且KVM年付的最低价格是50美元,而BandwagonHost这样做的目的绝对不是什么OpenVZ 6没人维护、OpenVZ 7迁移很麻烦什么的!BandwagonHost只有一个目的:“筛选高端用户”,而且目前的年付最低50美元的KVM把90%的不愿意花这个钱的用户、小白用户、爱折腾的用户、容易污染IP的用户,(PS:我也在这其中,我的两个吃了几年灰的何去何从)。而这部分用户中的大多数都是不会花50美元去搞这个的,所以BandwagonHost也没有必要在乎这一批低端用户的流失,并且预期以后的KVM用户能抵消现在OpenVZ的用户流失,而且后期购买OpenVZ的用户价格和KVM差别不太多,想上KVM的肯定就上了,所以流失的就让他流失吧。





OpenVZ VPS Phase Out

Dear Bandwagon Host Customer,

It is time for us to gradually phase out OpenVZ technology from our platform.

As you may know, OpenVZ v6 is going to reach EOL in November 2019. This means there will be no more security updates and no support provided by the developers, 
and we will not be able to continue operating this technology after this happens.

We want you to have the best experience possible, and we have carefully looked into our options. The only two viable options were:
Option 1: Introduce OpenVZ 7;
Option 2: Ask customers to migrate to KVM.

We did take a good look at OpenVZ 7. Unfortunately, we found that it will require a significant development effort in order 
to migrate all clients, and yet it offers no major advantages over OpenVZ 6 *or* KVM. At the same time, since introduction of our KVM plans back in June 2017 the vast 
majority of our customers naturally migrated from OpenVZ to KVM which only reinforces the strength of KVM platform compared to OpenVZ.

Therefore we are going to discontinue OpenVZ support on our platform and we ask that all remaining OpenVZ customers migrate to KVM. We are disabling all OpenVZ renewals on our platform.

To make this transition smoother for you, we have extended the paid period for all OpenVZ VPS for two weeks, free of charge, for all customers. This will give you two extra weeks of time to make this transition to KVM.

We thank you for choosing Bandwagon Host and we are continuing to work on bringing the best virtualization technologies to our customers.
