Proxmox

Proxmox gives you the freedom to customise your environments as needed, without locking you in to a single vendor.

What is Proxmox?

Proxmox is a complete open-source platform for enterprise-level virtualisation. With the built-in web interface, you're able to easily manage VMs & containers, software-defined storage & networking, and high availability (HA) clustering.

Utilising KVM, which is the industry-leading Linux virtualisation technology, you can run either Windows and Linux in virtual machines (VMs), where each VM has private, virtualised hardware: a network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc.

Alternatively, container-based virtualisation is available using LXC, which is an operating-system-level virtualisation environment for running multiple, isolated Linux systems on a single host.

Why use Proxmox?

Cost Effective

By utilising open-source software, you’re able to use all the features of Proxmox without needing to worry about complex licensing issues or increasing your costs.

Versatile

Not only does Proxmox allow you to create and manage virtual machines (VM), you're also able to create and manage containers for hosting your applications.

High Availability

Designed with private cloud in mind, Proxmox can be configured as a “cloud in a box” or in a high availability (HA) cluster configuration.

Scalability

Proxmox allows for the seamless expansion of compute, networking, and storage devices – allowing you to grow without downtime.

Backups

With backups being a requirement at any scale, Proxmox has fully integrated backup solutions that allow for live-restoring VMs or for individual file-level restores.

Security

With a built-in firewall, you're able to fully customise the rules on your networks to secure your environment. It also allows for role-based authentication to lock things down further.

Community

Proxmox has a large community that helps support it from all around the world – this can help when learning it for the first time or if you need to ask a question if you get stuck.

Management

With the graphical user interface (GUI) being easy to use and intuitive, all management tasks can be completed without requiring separate management tools or use of the command line.

Open Source Virtualisation

Open-Source Virtualisation

Unlike other cloud platforms or virtualisation software, Proxmox is an entirely free and open-source, which means that you’re able to access all its features without needing to worry about complex licensing issues or increasing your costs.

With Proxmox having a large community that support it and extend its functionality, it’s able to integrate with and support a larger variety of other services and other platforms, such as storage backends like, iSCSI, NFS, Ceph and more.

Enterprise Features

Enterprise Features

In addition to allowing for virtualised workloads, Proxmox also comes with other enterprise-grade features that allow you to make your environments more reliable and robust.

Some of these features include high availability (HA) clusters, the ability to configure storage clusters either using Proxmox’s own cluster file system (pmxcfs) or alternatives like Ceph, as well as software-defined networking – which allow administrators and users to manage advanced networking configurations and multitenancy across clusters.
