Because I'm using Proxmox VE for personal use and it's an AGPL license project, I can use it at home for free. Enterprise support can be provided, although I have never tried this and always took advantage of the community subscription. Once I installed the solution, I replaced the enterprise repository to the community one. I don't get all the goodness of Proxmox VE, but that is okay.

It's an open-source solution that can be used free of cost.

For the price, performance is going to be the first takeaway we can offer to our customers.

I use the open-source version of the solution. We build on a general public license. We don't pay for using the service. For us, as an open-source version, it's free. I'm not sure if there are other versions that cost more and what the pricing is. I've never looked into it.

Proxmox delivery more cost X Benefits in comparision to VMWare and Citrix Xen. It could be improved in future for more benefits in comparison to XCP-NG and Microsoft Hyper-V

I am not aware of the licensing cost, but there is a cost for support.

My advice on the pricing is that there is no pricing: it is free. The only thing you pay for is support and it is like $2,500 a year. The support is completely optional. But even the support is absolutely affordable for just about any company in the market. In any case, it is well below the cost of a VMware license.

It is so affordable if you're good with Linux.

Recently, I have been a Proxmox reseller. I wanted to promote it in India because there is no reseller here. We are trying to promote Proxmox here because being open source it's not popular worldwide, although we have been using it in production for the last more than five or six years. We have been exploring Proxmox for small applications for more than seven, eight years.

Proxmox is free software, but if you prefer the support and a more rested repository then you can pay for it.

The deployment itself cost nothing, it is Opensource software! The monthly subscription costs 17 euros per node, and it covers anything we needed so far...There are more options, but it is more then our customers needed until now .
