Both are leading virtulization technologies, KVM has latest features better than XEN

Xen Virtualization is hardware based para virtualization. Where it has is own OS with its own kernel, again dedicated resources shared from main server. It is almost like you have 99% control over the OS .

KVM Virtualization is hardware and kernel based full virtualization ... Where it has is own OS with its own kernel, again dedicated resources shared from main server. It has total control over the OS .

Many companies will go for KVM. XEN is also good, but usually for internal use in companies. Not really for VPS commercialization. Because to be more efficient, and to be able to use the computer resources at a good level, the company will try to use one hypervisor which can take few computer resources and allocated it to many virtual machines. Now there is a new technology of which helps you to only virtualize the kernel (creation of containers) rather than virtualizing the whole system.

KVM, period

Ive worked with Xen before and its quite excellent, but since the dawn of KVM, everyone uses it, and most clients knew about it other than XEN... So, Ill go with KVM, businesswise.

I prefer kvm as well. I have not used Xen but did run a few OpenVZ based nodes for awhile and they were a headache compared to kvm.

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is an open source hypervisor technology for virtualizing compute infrastructure running on x86 compatible hardware. Also like Xen, KVM has both an active user community and significant enterprise deployments.

A KVM host actually runs on the Linux kernel along with two KVM kernel modules (the kvm.ko module and either kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.ko). Through its tight kernel integration  including the I/O connectivity with kernel block and network drivers provided by Virtio  KVM can offer its guests more seamless access to all the complex hardware and networking profiles that they might encounter.

As others have said KVM is the king when it comes to this.

Xen tends to be more stable. It is older, is more mature and offers near native drivers for OSs like Microsoft Windows, whereas KVM is weaker in those regards. However, KVM does very well when you compare Linux vs Linux against Xen.

I would also give my vote to KVM. It is newer and stable.

Since you are comparing only with Xen, I will recommend you go with KVM. We have used VMware and KVM both. Both are stable and secure, Vmware has a lot more features ofcourse.

My personal choice is Vmware. But, if it is between xen and kvm, I opt for kvm.
