[Xen-users] Considering Xen for Ubuntu VPS environment


Server visualization seems very different than desktop visualization ala 
VirtualBox, Parallels, VMware. Already I have encountered (with Virtuozzo) that:

1) Does not boot a standard Ubuntu kernel, so is unable to run IPTables
2) Is not able to support ACL's on the filesystem
3) Unable to get to the server console - to watch the boot process, to fix 
sshd, etc...
4) Does not support Ubuntu distro version upgrades. Stuck at the level you 
start at.

I have heard that there are tools to be able to access the server console with 
Xen, but what about my other current points?

Which Xen providers do a good job with Ubuntu? (10.04 at present)

I would want a custom partitioning scheme, separate /boot, /, /srv, /var and so 
on... and ext4 for /boot, xfs for all others.

I assume with higher versions of Xen comes more capabilities, so knowing which 
version of Xen said provider uses would also be a search criteria I guess.
