Proxmox VE

Versatility and flexibility is Proxmox VEs' greatest strong points. Allowing infinite design capability, you can build infrastructures of various work loads, purposes, and goals and not be restricted by how you do it, or what differences may need to exist between the various infrastructure points. Proxmox VE allows you to design how you need to every time.

Pros

No answers on this topic
  • Versatility. The ability to utilize more than one type of storage for each instance.
  • Stability. Proxmox VE is the most stable hypervisor management solution I have seen to date. It just keeps going and going and going.
  • Speed. Utilizing Linux KVM and OpenVZ, you get the fastest and more capable virtual machines on the market today. And Proxmox VE's interface is always instantly loaded when you need it.
  • Reliability. Using standard tools, including Red Hat Cluster Suite, and providing command-line tools as well, this makes maintaining and using Proxmox VE more reliable and manageable to quickly get things back in running order when things do happen to stop.

Cons

No answers on this topic
  • OpenVZ is nice, but upstream it's suffering with the ability to keep up with Linux, while LXC, Linux's own container system, could be utilized.
  • RHCS with Pacemaker. When Proxmox VE started, they utilized the original RHCS cluster stack with rgmanager for the resource group management. Since then, RHCS has expanded and brought in Pacemaker to handle the same aspects rgmanager did, but in different and often better more flexible ways.

Proxmox VE provides the most capable, yet stable virtualization platform in the market today. Licensing options are also competitive and cost-effective for support, and support is extremely fast and knowledgable of getting issues resolved as quickly and soundly as possible.

Out of every product I have used for this, Proxmox VE is the most concise, clear, and functional I have ever seen. I continue to use Proxmox VE even after occasionally comparing alternatives available because of it's usability, design concept, and great support of features. It's very unlikely I will find a product that can even compete with Proxmox VE in every angle of what Proxmox VE provides.

Proxmox VE's ha-cluster functionality is very much improved, though does have a not-very-often occurrence of failure. In a 2-node cluster of Proxmox VE, HA can fail causing an instance that is supposed to migrate between the two nodes stop and fail until manually recovered through the command-line tools provided. Other than this, the HA clustering capability of Proxmox VE has proven to be reliable in 3 or more clustered environments with much less chance of these failures to occur.

Proxmox VE's interfacing is always fast to load, both the Web interface and the command-line tool interfaces. Reporting is practically real time almost all the time, and you can see everything in mere seconds, easily able to identify if something is wrong or it everything is in tip-top shape as always desired

Alternatives Considered

The Proxmox Cluster solution only requires a browser to control and manage all of your server resources. The other solutions require you to run a specific Operating System to manage them, getting awkward since the underlying technology runs on another OS. The native integration with Ceph is big move on this wonderful Storage Technology

Proxmox VE provides everything you need to quickly add new storage mediums, network and local, as well as networking interfaces, such as using Linux standard bridges and now Open-vSwitch bridges which can be even more scalable than before. Proxmox VE 4.0 dropped support for OpenVZ in favor of the more well supported and native LXC and made an upgrade path to it very simple.

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic
  • It's a great solution allowing you to use all the server's resources on a single platform, saving energy, network resources and trouble of not having access to a troubled system. The ROI is immediate!
  • Very secure system, allowing you to run your firewall directly on this system. Again immediate ROI.
