Overall Satisfaction with Proxmox VE

Proxmox is used by the IT department providing all the services they require, by virtualizing dozens of machines from test environments to real operations. Proxmox allows us to easily test, move and implement real services, allowing us to run Linux Servers, Windows Servers, and even others on a single server.
  • Provides an easy to use management interface
  • Works with Ceph, a distributed storage natively
  • Virtualizing different platforms
  • Provisioning of resources from local hosting server to virtual server, such as allocation of PCI cards, Graphics and others
  • Native support for other storage services, including some of the important ones on the market today
  • Separate interface for automatic provisioning, allowing host providers to offer free trials
  • Integrated CRM software for Service Providers
  • 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.
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
A great virtualization platform with a very nice cluster technology, allowing you to manage all your resources in a single interface without the need to install an application or run a particular operating system. It's not appropriate if you need to handle a large amount of servers, there's a limit of 32 nodes.
