Overall Satisfaction with Proxmox VE
Proxmox VE is the best solution to use bare-metal company resources in a cloud way. Proxmox VE let users to have a sort of cloud in house, with API a nice web interface and many automation possibility. Is the must to have solution if you need to run the same software with Proxmox VE locally and on a remote solution (cloud providers, baremetal, vps etc).
- Live Migration of VM on different nodes.
- HA architecture without SPOF, multi master and Watchdog based Fencing.
- Programmable Backup and restore.
- Terraform provider plugin for Proxmox VE.
- Lack in ARM architectures support.
- Better integration with cloud providers, for example Oracle Serverless.
- Save money for licenses.
- Avoid vendor lock-in (high cost migrating the solutions).
- Possibility to use low cost or high quality server based on business needs.
- VMware ESXi, Hyper-V and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)
Proxmox VE is cheaper than VMware, especially upscaling an HA architecture. Compared with other free or less expensive solutions, Proxmox VE is high compatible with more types of hardware solutions and more VM types. From my point of view, Proxmox VE has no competitor at the same price level, it offers the most complete and production-ready HA solution.

Proxmox VE is a good alternative to the most famous cloud providers. It's the top solution when you want to run applications on your own cloud in your house or on remote servers. If the company has a remote and in-house server with Proxmox VE is possible to use the same code and the same VM on both sites, this is not possible with the standard cloud providers. Proxmox VE is the lead application also when you need total control of the hardware, base system, and all the stuff that are hidden on standard cloud providers.
