Using Intel network cards 520 and 540, I have not tested any 550 yet. Proxmox gets the best performance, but not by much, XEN and VMware get really close, I do not think it can be the "deciding" factor. With Broadcom network cards the result changes a lot. In this case…

Well, this is one of those "Oranges and Apples" scenario . KVM are a very mature and very flexible solution, Enterprise ready . Oracle Virtualbox is an interesting solution for occasional and development use, not enterprise ready in any way . If I have to choose…

My 5 cents : Go with Proxmox . It is NOT just a wrapper for KVM, it has a lot of features that are not present in plain KVM . It is extremely easy to set it up, you can have a 16 node cluster up and running in a single day of work ! Everything you need to manage your…

There are no single feature that can me choose one and not another ... The balance within some os the fuctionality can make all the difference ! Intuitivness, scalabillity and remote accessibility, at least for my use personal use, are most important, plus price ! If the…

In the VDI front, it have SPICE fully implemented and it is working, but, as you must know, SPICE for Windows and MAC still in development, so it is not a real VDI option yet . Openflow are in development state, partialy implemented, but there are no way to set it up in the…

I am not an expert in switches, this is just the result of my personal professional mileage: It depends in what the size and needs for expandability and flexibility of your IT infrastructure . Generally, I see Cisco has more flexibility . But in the 10GB over copper…
