OpenVZ 7 VPS Migration to KVM - Free Upgrade
Sunday, 21st January, 2024
We at hostEONS.com constantly try to provide stable, secure and affordable VPS Hosting Services, hence to continue to provide secure services we have to migrate all OpenVZ based VPS to KVM VPS.
As some of you must be already aware that CentOS 7 is reaching End Of Life (EOL) in July 2024 and OpenVZ 7 is based on CentOS 7. EOL means that all development including security updates will stop for OpenVZ 7 or CentOS 7.
Virtuozzo/OpenVZ Developers have dropped the project of OpenVZ 8 and are working on OpenVZ 9 but there is still no date available when OpenVZ 9 will be available and what will be the upgrade path for it.
So we have decided to provide a FREE Upgrade to KVM VPS for all our OpenVZ VPS Customers to a KVM VPS with similar specs.
So how do we plan to achieve it ?
- First of all there is no upgrade path for OpenVZ to KVM, data has to be migrated manually from OpenVZ to KVM
So This is how you we are going to do this Migration:
- We will setup a new KVM VPS For you with similar specs and email you details and will provide certain amount of time to move all your data to your new KVM VPS
- Before doing this we may migrate some of the OpenVZ based VPS to other nodes as we need to consolidate some of the VPS and free up some VPS Nodes to setup as KVM Nodes, we are just not going to use only existing VPS nodes as KVM Nodes more resources then OpenVZ, so we will have to even add new VPS Nodes for this which is going to increase our cost a lot, but will eat up that cost.
- We will honour the price of your current OpenVZ VPS packages till your next renewal date, but from next billing cycle you may have to pay a little extra (only if you have some very highly discounted promotional package), for most of the users price won't change at all.
Some Extra Benefits of this Upgrade and Migration:
- Your VPS will be now a KVM VPS, hence you can install your own custom kernel and even Custom OS via your own ISO
- Free Backup/Snapshot
- Free Upgrade to 1 Gbps Port Speed
- All IPv6 VPS will also get a free upgrade to our KVM VPS with IPv4 IP till their next renewal date.
How do I get update or status of this Migration:
If you want to skip the QUE and you don't need Data from your OpenVZ VPS or have backups of your data, just submit a support ticket, we will terminate your OpenVZ VPS and setup a new KVM VPS with similar specs and email you details.
We have already removed OpenVZ based VPS From our order FORM As well as website, hence we are not accepting any new orders for OpenVZ based VPS, but this is a great opportunity where you can free Upgrade to KVM VPS From OpenVZ VPS
If you have any doubts feel free to submit a support ticket.
