Host doesn't have to be RedHat, only kernel is based on redhat kernel
instead of generic linux kernel. You can compile redhat kernel on debian
or any other linux. Not sure how it is on debian, but on gentoo you can
select among kernels to use - and one of them is redhat kernel. The
thing itself can run on any distribution.
Same goes for what is inside the VPS.
