What do you think of Proxmox VE?

Primary Use Case: We currently have more than 160 virtual machines and LXC containers on Proxmox in an all Linux production environment.   • Improvements to My Organization: Get the community level if you are on a budget --- keep your software updated to the latest releases. • Valuable Features: Live migration. It is easier to balance loads across hypervisors if a given container or virtual machine uses more resources than its peers. • Room for Improvement: IMPORTANT - use separate physical network for Corosync/Heartbeat functions. This is obscure in the documentation - but you'll find it. • Use of Solution: One to three years. • Stability Issues: Heartbeat was overwhelmed due to all hypervisors running a single NIC - nodes started to fence themselves when load...

What do you think of Hyper-V?

Primary Use Case: Providing development and test environments for risk management applications. A variety of standard images were created and could be applied as needed. • Improvements to My Organization: Hyper-V provided freedom to spin up development and test environments. As projects were created, an environment could be created and applied. • Valuable Features: Reasonably easy to use. Snapshots could be prepared and deployed as a developer needed them. As well, environments could be disabled or removed. • Room for Improvement: It needs additional administration and monitoring capabilities. Status and availability became an issue and need.  • Use of Solution: Trial/evaluations only.
