Red hat virtio ethernet, qemu dvd, red hat virtio scsi. This is a VPS running KVM on the real server.

Side note - it COULD be a 1:1 virtual, i.e. it owns the whole server. Makes it easier for desaster recovery, scaling, uptime and stability (no hardware drivers). – TomTom Jan 26 '13 at 16:36
Good point, though with only 2GB memory, I find that rather unlikely. – Dennis Kaarsemaker Jan 26 '13 at 16:45
Agreed. More likely a small cheap virtual server. – TomTom Jan 26 '13 at 16:50
