What are Smart Servers?
Smart servers are dedicated entities based on KVM CloudBoot hypervisors with passthrough enabled. Smart servers are created and managed exactly in the same way as virtual servers. The only difference is that only one smart server can be created per hypervisor. Using a smart server feature, you can create and manage servers on smart appliances with passthrough enabled. You can set the maximum specifications for the smart servers (maximum size, resource price, etc) in the same way as for virtual servers.
Smart servers can be organized into zones to create different tiers of service, for example, by setting up different zones for smart appliances, with limits and prices specified per zone. Smart hypervisor zones can also be used to create private clouds for specific users.
