A typical server "rack".

A hybrid hosting service or hybrid server is a type of Internet hosting which is a combination of a physically-hosted server with virtualization technology.

A hybrid server is a new kind of dedicated server that offers both the power of a classic dedicated server and the flexibility of cloud computing. On hybrid dedicated servers hardware are 100% allocated to user. The price is lower than for dedicated servers.

The server is separated into hybrid server environments using Red Hat KVM or any other virtualization. Each hybrid environment is securely isolated and has guaranteed resources available to it which ensures a high level of performance and responsiveness. A hybrid server combines all of the benefits of virtualization technology with the performance of a full dedicated server. So, an administrator can use automation to suspend, restart, or reinstall the operating system. One large server is split into a few (normally two) Hybrid servers.
