BVCP 2.0.x Released
BVCP 2.0.x Released

Our one of the most popular FREE-TO-USE Software BVCP reached the next milestone.
Big thanks to the active community, a ton of feedbacks received which is very useful.

Im happy to inform everyone that the 2.0 is released and features everything promised such as

 - UEFI Storage
 - Significantly better user experience.

and more.

Hotfixes are still rolling out due we did a lot of changes on how the software handles the data, which could cause problems. Many and many different systems running BVCP and nearly impossible to test every scenario, so similar to every update we address all kind of situation shared with our community.





Milestone Completed

This was a BIG milestone, BVCP is become a product not just a software.
We officially open to give contractual support at North America and Central European region to this software.

BVCP released back in time 2021 and still very active and regarding on CHANGELOG its getting impoved every quarter.

Hundreds of servers using BVCP to manage Virtual Machines and actually I think it is a good alternative for Home and Small Bussinesses, even for Hosting.


Our Goals

Our goal to improve and expand BVCP functionality until it reach the top segment of the global industry. We keep the dual licensing model, BVCP is free-to-use for everyone without any liability and warranty, any other case we are open to make a deal.

BVCP is not an Operating System and won't be. It's running on FreeBSD and even doing well on pfSense.
BVCP a very small and easy-to-understand software. It does not change your system, does not install anything at all. Does not build up depedencies, does not handles your filesystem or any sensitive and critical component. BVCP let you handle your own system but gives you a premium comfort on webinterface. 

On the market there are a plenty of names. Vmware, VirtualBox, Proxmox, CBSD to name a few. And console utilities like vm-bhyve.  

BVCP does not challenge them, instead we trying to be compatible with them. A plenty of future plan we have already to make import & export possible. So users can freely choose what kind of system they prefer. 

Personally Im still using many different systems, BVCP could address what I missed from the others. A simplicity and comfort to manage every host in one single interface, SECURELY.
