I have Proxmox VE, which is based on Debian Linux, installed at home. It's part of my virtualization now. It allows one to create  virtual machines in containers. We basically created a web interface. My test environment and pfSense are installed on the solution for building the data center. I am using version seven, which is the latest version that was recently released. I've been working with Proxmox since version two. 

The solution can be used to virtualize environments, as well as for containers, similar to that of VMware, Hyper-V, Nutanix and OpenStack. Proxmox takes a different approach. It provides one single user interface to configure the virtual machines, the containers, the management and everything else. It's based on Debian Linux, using KVM. The web interface replaces the need to deal with the command line. It allows a person to create virtual machines and is very user-friendly. It's an amazing product.

We are now running it in full HA production vs XCP-NG and VMWware 6.7u3p We have multiple VMs on 6 hosts for Proxmox, 5 hosts on XCP-NG, and 12 Hosts for VMware.

Proxmox Config: 6X 2697V2 128GB ram each / 24TB SSD for CEPH (HP S700 PRO). XCP-NG Config: 5X2690V3 128GB each/12TB SSD (Samsung 860 Pro).

VMware Config: HP BLADE 12X2690V3 256GB each/2 SAN with 24X1TB SSD (S700 PRO) and total usable 1PB with multiple DAS for storage.

Comparing the CEPH to vSAN is about the same (wasn't running it in production but the performance was greater with a cheap drive on Proxmox, performance with SAS drives is the same).

XO-SAN was a way to mix a whole mismatch of drive and still get good performance but I would doubt the reliability.

We use the open-source version of Proxmox for automation and other uses, including LXC containers. We use it for my enterprise applications and to offer our hosted cloud-services.

We sell Proxmox VE solutions to our customers. The workload to help our customers may be the biggest use case to be on the cloud. We use a bunch of statuses, and different ways to deliver databases, and SQL Servers. So, that's the natural way we use the platform on the cloud.

We use the solution to host virtual machines, such as: SQL Server Database, Active directory domain services, web services, general cloud applications, and some virtual machines or containers for development and testing purpose. Specially the preference for containers is due to the easly development when the only basic operational system is required istead of fully hardware virtualization (kvm).

We heavly use replication resource to assign some garantine to critical virtual machines wich could run eventually on other sites or hosts, in case of broken internet links, hardware issues or even hacker attacks (many thanks to ZFS working with PVE-ZSync feature that allow planning a standback period of retention snapshots, quickly failover and fallback of virtual machine storage)

This is a free version of VMware and that's why we're using it. It does everything that VMware can do and it's more flexible. We were looking for a virtual solution and we're a startup, so the cheapest is best. We are customers of Proxmox and I'm the technology operations manager.

There are a number of services that we need, such as a dedicated phone system and an Active Directory server, that we run in a virtualized environment. Doing so means that we don't need to use dedicated hardware for them.

With Proxmox, we use the hypervisor of Proxmox and Proxmox backups. In VMware, I see all the production, like vSphere, vCenter, vRealize Operations Manager, vSAN, Workspace ONE, and VMware Horizon. Right now we are working with NSX. 

For VMware, as a partner, I have many cases of vSAN as a hyperconvergence solution. This solution is very popular in my country, mostly with banks. There are many solutions that we have implemented and that are very successful. Horizon is another solution that is highly requested by clients. Because of the pandemic, the VDI and Remote Desktop are often requested from our clients. Those two are very good solutions. From my experience, I don't have many problems with them.
