OnApp CDN

OnApp CDN is great for virtually any site with a desire or requirement to offload processing resources to a content delivery network in general. The OnApp CDN is one of the largest, if not largest CDNs on the planet and is well equipped to handle virtually any type of file distribution, including video. Video distribution POPs on the OnApp CDN are less available because each host that offers video has special requirements they may or may not be willing to get involved with. If you plan to distribute video on OnApp CDN first check if the number of POPs available for serving video suit your needs

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

OnApp CDN

  • Ease of setup. You can be CDN enabled within a few minutes.
  • Huge CDN network rivals any other out there.
  • Competitive pricing due to web hosts who own OnApp CDN Edge Servers competing for traffic on their CDN POPs.
Matt Lundstrom | TrustRadius Reviewer

Proxmox VE

  • Provides an easy to use management interface
  • Works with Ceph, a distributed storage natively
  • Virtualizing different platforms

Cons

OnApp CDN

  • There really is nothing I can think of. It's simple and intuitive to use after your first instruction on the system.
Matt Lundstrom | TrustRadius Reviewer

Proxmox VE

  • Several options are available for storage. CephFS, the clustered built-in network storage, needs to be installed via the console or ssh. Other options like iSCSI do not support host migration.

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

OnApp CDN

We compared VMware for its virtualization capabilities and ended up deciding on OnApp as the UI was more intuitive for less technical support staff, which meant that our customers would have more staff available to help them with cloud related issues. We also checked our Akamai specifically for CDN however again the OnApp platform seemed simpler and less expensive to leverage, and with the added benefit that we had more control of the CDN 'in-house' than using a fully third party platform

Proxmox VE

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

OnApp CDN

  • OnApp in general has been a good investment, though in the early days this was a questionable result as stability was nothing like what it is today. Things have gotten much better over the years and I would anticipate OnApp to generate ROI so long as customers are looking for cloud and CDN solutions in general. I'm not sure that investing in OnApp as a hosting provider specifically for the CDN capability will generate any positive return, but the OnApp system as a whole has the features required that most should be able to make a return on.

Proxmox VE

  • Proxmox has allowed us to provide completely free training and an application development environment by reusing desktop hardware.
