  • The storage service provides virtual disks to virtual machines. This service relies on the base storage cluster for data redundancy.
  • The image service enables users to upload, store, and use images of supported guest operating systems and virtual disks. This service relies on the base storage cluster for data redundancy.
  • The identity service provides authentication and authorization capabilities for Virtuozzo Infrastructure Platform.
  • The compute service enables users to create, run, and manage virtual machines. This service relies on the custom QEMU/KVM hypervisor.
  • The networking service provides private and public network capabilities for virtual machines.
  • The admin panel service provides a convenient web user interface for managing the entire infrastructure.
