Hi! I have just bought a dedicated server 16GB of RAM for a month and I'm planning to turn it into 4 VPS servers with 4GB of RAM each one. May I know which software would you suggest for doing this?
All your comments are welcomed.

You need to install some version of virtualization software. There are many to choose from, some free, some paid.

Here are some of the usual ones that hosts use:
SolusVM
ProxMox
Virtualizor
VMWare

What is the best free and paid ones in your list?

I want to install it.

one more question, if I use these software to install on a VPS, it can be done?

Energizedit give you the best solutions available, but remember your host will use some RAM, so you will have around 14GB RAM for your VPS.
What does "your host" mean? it is the software that I will install on my dedicated server?

SolusVM is the best control panel available for small and commercial business it will cost you $ 10.00/m for a master and $10/m for slaves you can use your master and slave on the same server and you will pay $ 20.00/ month it is easy to setup.

Proxmox is a good control panel and it is free for your kind of application it is a little more complicated to install but it is not rocket science aether also proxmox gives you the way to create VPSs containers and KVMs VPSs on the same sever.

Virtualizor is good but expensive.

Virtualizor is a great option. Since he only need to create 4 VPS's, the cost would be $4/Mo (unlimited is $9/Mo).

I wouldn't consider that expensive.

SolusVM
ProxMox
Virtualizor

Above are PAID panels , every control panel has different operations , and pre-requisites .

Go through their documentation and you will get the idea , still Solusvm can be installed on a VPS and you will need one more dedicated server to host the VPS seperately.

Thank you.

If you using to host 4 VPS that you need personally i would go with VMware hypervisor. Its the best OS that is purely built to hold and create Virtual machines.

Its free as well for you to get and use. There remote console login is fantastic as well.

You also need to consider which virtualization method you are going to use. OpenVZ, KVM, XEN.

The biggest questions are:
Do you want to provision all Linux VPS's, or do you need windows also?
Do you want the VPS's to have shared or dedicated resources?

You can install many virtualization technologies like KVM, XEN, OpenVZ, VMware EXSi on the dedicated server to create virtual servers on it. Proxmox or Solumvm or onapp are control panel for these virtualization and which will gives you graphical interface to create,delete or manage VMs and assign additional memory, IP address, disk and etc.

We do not recommend openvz because the kernel is shared between several VPS so you wont be able to create different types( ubuntu, centos) virtual machines in one OpenVZ node.

OpenVZ is only runs on Linux. it doesn't support Windows and BSD operating systems, and custom kernels cannot be used.​
