What is most valuable?

The template option allows us to build a desktop in a VM, then quickly deploy as a linked clone. The hard drive file on the template is used (read-only), then all changes are saved in a separate hard drive file. It is like deploying a new VM based on snapshots.

How has it helped my organization?

By implementing Proxmox, 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 web interface is quick to learn for techs to deploy VMs based on templates, as required.

What needs improvement?

Some of the more advanced features and options required for setup still need to use the console and hand edit config files.

What do you think of Proxmox VE?

What is our primary use case?

We currently have more than 160 virtual machines and LXC containers on Proxmox in an all Linux production environment.  

How has it helped my organization?

Get the community level if you are on a budget --- keep your software updated to the latest releases.

What is most valuable?

Live migration. It is easier to balance loads across hypervisors if a given container or virtual machine uses more resources than its peers.

What needs improvement?

IMPORTANT - use separate physical network for Corosync/Heartbeat functions. This is obscure in the documentation - but you'll find it.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Heartbeat was overwhelmed due to all hypervisors…
