Proxmox Vs Alternatives


Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon All,


I was cruising around the forums a few days ago such is my typical routine and under one of the threads (http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/21328-cant-stop-my-addiction/) there was a comment as to using Proxmox to virtualize, naturally I instantly went to the web to investigate and its been taking my thoughts ever since.


I have had some interest in virtualizing my home server to give me some additional options in terms of backups, isolation (security), OS specific software, and hardware mobility (migration). My current setup uses a box with just windows server 2012. Initially I was thinking it would be alright to use Hyper-V however it lacks a few features that I was looking for like PCI and USB passthrough.


My initial searches for information on proxmox have been overall pretty positive and the price is right. However it also yielded some alternatives such as XenServer, ESXI (vmware) (and many more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_platform_virtualization_software) and I decided I might as well grab a community opinion on what people prefer to use if they do virtualize (or even reasons not to?)
