Which is best, for what application?
Best in what terms (User interface, stability, scalability, popularity)?
Is this for Home use, SOHO (Small Office, Home Office), or a Production Environment?
What are your expectations for backup / failover?
What is your knowledge level?
Oh, and is there a particular reason you left out VirtualBox, XEN, and VMWARE?

Your question would be like asking what vehicle should I buy to a total stranger? Well gee I don't know, for some a scooter might be the best solution, for others they may need a mini van, still others may need a large diesel truck, then there is the guy that wants a sports car. If we know nothing about the intended use, end goal(s), or user ability how can we possibly make a recommendation?

The OP probably left out VirtualBox, VMWare and Xen, because they are not management tools. She is obviously looking for a solution that helps her managing her VPS's.

However I think the should wonder why not to use OpenQRM. That would be my first choice. My second would be ConVirt.

But then again I agree that you need to know a lot more to come up with a good advice.

The OP is talking about two commercial apps but the question seems to suggest a more simple question.

K@te, might you offer a bit more on what you need or want to do with it?

by the way, welcome.

Gee, sorry, I am old and still confused a bit.

Are you saying that you have 4 real servers right now? And that you want to use a single real server as a host, to support 3 virtual computers? Or do I have that all wrong?

Why would you set them up as slaves? Wouldn't it make more sense if they are all active nodes? This way you can share the load between all the servers. Just make sure that when one physical server fails, the others can take over the VPS's that were running on the crashed server.

Sorry, for some reason we all seemed to be confused by the way it was worded or we just flaked out.

Can anyone tell me which is better, Virtualizor or SolusVM?
