Confluence on VPS. Virtuozzo at Westnet.

I want to install Confluence on our ISP's virtual server offering. Westnet offer the following VPS options. They use Virtuozzo, running either Linux or Windows. I'd probably go for Debian Linux.

I've seen the Atlassian info about Confluence on VMWare, and the basic system requirements for 5 concurrent users. It looks like the VPS2 package from Westnet would suffice. It offers 1GB RAM, 2GHz CPU, 30GB storage, 100GB traffic.

Does anyone have specific experience or comments regarding running Confluence on a Virtuozzo virtual private server? I'd appreciate any advice before jumping into it. Info on suggested alternative Australian VPS offerings also gratefully received.

I am running a Confluence instance on a Web24 VPS (Virtuozzo container). It runs great but I do have 2Gb of RAM assigned to Confluence (4 gig total). They took a few days (which I think was not normal) to get the server provisioned but from there it's been great.

Very fast from Australia.

As an alternate, I also use some dedicated hosts from Server4You in the US. I recommend for those that want to self manage and don't mind the US latency. 12Gb of RAM didicated for $80 is great value.

Thanks Colin. Does the Virtuozzo control panel allow you to assign RAM to different apps, or if not, how did you assign a particular amount of memory to Confluence? Is that a Confluence setting?

Yes, it's just a standard Linux install so you can control the amount of RAM using the Xmx Java memory setting
