The biggest advantage of is OpenVZ its efficient use of resources which makes significant memory and CPU savings. At the same time, it results in higher performance since it does not run a full virtualization emulation. The disadvantage of OpenVZ is the fact that the vps does not have its own kernel, rather it shares the kernel of the host. This introduces limitation such as OpenVZ is limited to only Linux operating systems, and the lack of ability to customize kernel and kernel parameters/tunables. For most users though, OpenVZ VPS does the job. It offers enough features and very fast performance at very low price.
KVM which is an acronym for Kernel-based Virtual Machine is a hardware virtualization technology built on Linux. This makes it possible to run any operating on KVM vps like Linux, Windows and BSD. This is possible because this technology mimics real hardware. As a true hardware virtualization machine, unlike OpenVZ, KVM offers its users full control over any aspect of their vps.
