2013-05-24 Distribution Release: Proxmox 3.0 "Virtual Environment"
[Proxmox] Martin Maurer has announced the release of Proxmox 3.0 "Virtual Environment" edition, a Debian-based distribution offering a complete server virtualisation management solution based on KVM and containers: "We just released Proxmox VE 3.0. Its based on the great Debian 7.0 release and introduces a great new feature set - VM Templates and Clones. Under the hood, many improvements and optimizations are done, most important is the replacement of Apache 2 by our own event-driven API server. Changelog: update the Ceph packages to 0.61.2; pve-cluster 3.0 - depend on fuse (seems most utilities moved from fuse-utils to fuse), remove dependency on fuse-utils (this package is no longer required), fix warning about uninitialized value, fix bug 383 - restart pveproxy instead of apache2; pve-manager 3.0-20 - fix login problem when http_proxy is set, updated Chinese, German and French translation, allow to upload files with spaces in file name...." See the release announcement http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/13898- ... 0-released! and release notes http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Roadmap#Proxmox_VE_3.0 for more technical details.

ProxMox looks nice, but I've decided to go another route for my virtualization stuff. "To access the Enterprise Repository, each Proxmox VE Server needs a valid Subscription Key. " ..... that was the killer for me, same with vmware.

Decided to go with XenServer and XenManager ... Citrix open sourced these this year, and you can update without subscribing or buying anything (albeit via command line, you can and it's not hard to do, the subscription allows you to update via the gui interface). The yearly pricetag, about $200 right now... but you don't have to buy that either... not to mention the plethera of open source stuff that deals with xen out there.

Proxmox is cool, and it's not expensive either... I just made the decision I didn't want to have to deal with license keys ;)

I'm not a huge fan of Xen... mostly because it was "half-heartedly" adopted by our company, then abandoned like the very next year.

I mostly just work in VirtualBox locally, but use VMWare on some production-esque deploys.

The only virtual machine stuff that I know of in the workplaces I've been has been either VMWare or whatever proprietary offering the vendor we were using happened to have; by name, all I've ever seen in the work place is either VMWare or IBM's original VM, which I have used with VM/CMS way back in the eighties and Z/OS or whatever their more recent mainframe software has been in more recent years.

Other implementations I've seen have been on Sun Solaris, carving up 12 to 24 processor systems. Finally, I've seen Windows Servers in racks and as far as I know they were using VMWare.

At home, the only one I've used on anything more than incidental use, though, is Virtualbox, and it has worked well in personal use situations.

2014-03-13 NEW • Distribution Release: Proxmox 3.2 "Virtual Environment"
[Proxmox] Martin Maurer has announced the release of Proxmox 3.2 Virtual Environment edition, a Debian-based distribution offering a complete server virtualization management solution based on KVM and containers. From the press release: "Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH, developer of the open source server virtualization platform Proxmox Virtual Environment (VE), today released version 3.2. Big enhancements in this release are the SPICE multi-monitor remote viewer for virtual servers and containers (with spiceterm), the distributed Ceph storage system and Open vSwitch. Countless updates are added like qemu 1.7, improved live backup, support for VMware(TM) pvscsi and vmxnet3, a new ZFS storage plugin, latest NIC drivers and bug fixes. Proxmox VE 3.2 includes the ability to build the Ceph storage cluster directly on Proxmox VE hosts. Ceph is a massively scalable, open source distributed object store and file system that is very popular in many cloud computing deployments. Proxmox VE 3.2 supports Ceph's RADOS Block Device to be used for VM disks...."

So, since I have the C7000 blade center, I have installed Proxmox on it...

https://www.proxmox.com/en/downloads/it ... -installer
Last update: 06 October 2015
File size: 678.71 MB
Version: 4.0-0d8559d0-17
MD5SUM for the ISO is 2630b6444ded474b43a8a5d84079d960

This has come a LONG LONG way since last year. Automatic failover if a host fails and some other very cool things. I ended up with proxmox as some of my processors didn't have the flags needed for several other of the virtualization platforms, and I must say, I really like Proxmox. If you have a few systems to play with and want to mess with virtualization, this is a nice way to do it. Plus it saves you all that money on vmware... :)
