Great hyper visor solution for hobbyist on a budget.

Yes it has its flaws and by no means perfect but brings redundant storage and multi node capability to the masses.

The PROS:

1. Nice usable web interface and fast unlike its other contenders cough cough VMware
2. Low resource usage - for a basic start of virtualisation
3. Live migration - storage on CEPH or NFS or even ZFS
4. OS is debian so easy to get to grips with and stable
5. Free*
6. Regular updates and new features
7. Runs on pretty much any common PC parts - thanks to debian

The CONS:

1. Nagging subscription when logging into the web interface
2. Not all functionality in the web interface - disk partitioning
3. Proxmox ISO is not hybrid so pain to install from a USB, also recovery is unique to proxmox.
4. Resource pool does nothing really, so have to manually or script qm to change cpu limit and memory shares.

Overall a great project and glad it is around, as have tried a few like Ovirt and basic kvm manager which has worst problems and high resource usage.

So thanks to the Proxmox Team!
