Virtual Private Servers - Solaris FAQ

  1. Can I upgrade from a FreeBSD or BSD/OS Virtual Private Server to a Solaris VPS?
    Yes, you can upgrade; however, the process is not automatic. In order to upgrade, you will have to order a Solaris VPS, transfer your content, files, configurations, etc., move your domain name, and then terminate your existing VPS.

    In the near future, we will have a 'Shadow' process much like the one we currently use for migrating from BSD/OS to FreeBSD.

  2. What are the details of the Solaris VPS?

    SPARC Ultra AXI 440 MHz
    1 GB RAM
    36 GB drives

    Operating System: Solaris 2.6
    Web Server: Apache 1.3.12
    FTP Server: ProFTP
    Mail Server: sendmail

  3. How many subhosts can the Solaris VPS support?
    The same subhosting recommendations for the FreeBSD VPS apply to the Solaris VPS.

    Solaris Standard: 25 subhosts
    Solaris Pro: 60 subhosts

    Of course the same guidelines and limitations of subhosting also apply to the Solaris VPS. The Server Administrator is responsible for managing the load created by multiple subhosts.

    Although the Solaris VPS will support subhosts, the intended purpose of this product is to support a single user with more complex web site requirements.

  4. What system resources are allocated to each Solaris VPS?

    Solaris Standard
    Disk Space: 400 MB
    Processes: 64 processes (25 httpd processes)

    Solaris Pro
    Disk Space: 800 MB
    Processes: 96 processes (40 httpd processes)

  5. Is there an E-Commerce shopping cart available for the Solaris VPS?
    There is not currently a shopping cart add-on available directly from NTT/VERIO. You can, however, purchase a variety of shopping carts that run on the Solaris operating system. We are planning to add Mercantec's SoftCart in January 2001.

  6. Will the Solaris VPS support Java Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP)?
    We anticipate making servlets and JSPs available via Apache's Jakarta-Tomcat project. These add-ons are scheduled to be available by January 9, 2001.

  7. When will Allaire ColdFusion be available?
    NTT/VERIO will be offering ColdFusion Enterprise v4.5 on the Solaris VPS. Clients can lease ColdFusion for approximately £15 per month. ColdFusion is planned to be available on the Solaris Virtual Server by January 9, 2001.

  8. When will Chili!Soft ASPs be available?
    Much like NTT/VERIO's ColdFusion offering, we will also be providing Chili!Soft ASPs on the Solaris VPS. Pricing is yet to be determined, but it will be monthly recurring fee of less than £20. Chili!Soft ASPs is planned to be available on the Solaris VPS by January 15, 2001.
