    Security protocol for VPS's when the service is terminated.

    I'm assuming each VPS is on it's own partition?

    Is the partition wiped before it's allocated to someone else?

    Backups?

    It depends on the platform but Virtuozzo/solusvm VPS's are not on their own partition. it's all just files on the /vz partition. When terminated the files are deleted and if a new VPS new files are created. Backups remain until they rotate out and are deleted, normally a month.

    Just so I'm clear here Les, each VPS shares the same partition and there is no specific space allocated on the disk for each VPS? Thus if a file is deleted that data could be overwritten by the same or another VPS?

    A VPS would not have the ability to run a file recovery tool on open space allocated to it?

    Not to my knowledge.
