    9 Tachanka maintains a couple of servers distributed throughout data centers around the world. Most of these servers are configured to host virtual private servers (VPS), currently implemented using [http://linux-vserver.org linux-vserver]. This allows for complete isolation of separate software systems with the lowest possible hardware overheads. In other words, a high emphasis is placed on security whilst optimising the performance of the services we provide.
