It depends on your node neighbors. KVM is your allotment, you will always have what you pay for, but not abroad. And more flexibility in customization.
OpenVZ - with an empty node, everything will fly, but with a full one, and also with overselling, you will not have all your resources, someone will constantly pinch off a piece of the thread.
And resource-intensive neighbors plant the channel in the same way, both in the first case and in the second one.

KVM virtualization is a full-fledged virtual machine (hardware virtualization) with its own dedicated RAM, processor core and hard disk.
OpenVZ virtualization assumes a greater "attachment" to the parent machine (the physical server where the OpenVZ container runs), because all OpenVZ containers running on the same physical machine use a common Linux kernel.
In KVM, resource limits are stricter than in OpenVZ. In OVZ, server performance may deviate more or less, depending on the neighbors, and in KVM you are allocated a strictly defined amount of resources.
There is no difference between VPS and VDS.
