The solution allows for easy integrations.The most valuable feature of this solution is performance.The solution's compatibility is very good with multiple operating systems. The moving systems are very good and migration is excellent. These are the most valuable features for us.Proxmox allows us to achieve affordable performance while keeping high levels of data protection and flexibility.It is easier to balance loads across hypervisors if a given container or virtual machine uses more resources than its peers.We now have the ability to quickly build and deploy VM desktops for application testing with the snapshot ability to rollback, as required.Saves a lot of time compared to imaging physical desktops.The template option allows us to build a desktop in a VM, then quickly deploy as a linked clone.

The solution needs a better billing system.I would like to see more monitoring in the next release of this solution.The solution should include some features that can help with converting raw files into different formats. It should offer better management around raw files.This solution needs a more flexible and efficient backup solution in the dashboard.It would be nice to have total CPU and RAM allocations show for all VMs/CTs to avoid overloading an individual hypervisor.Separate physical network for Corosync/Heartbeat should be emphasized in the Quick Start or Getting Started documentation.Some of the more advanced features and options required for setup still need to use the console and hand edit config files.
