Proxmox VE is a platform to run virtual machines and containers. It is based on Debian Linux, and completely open-source. For maximum flexibility, we implemented two virtualization technologies – Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) and container-based virtualization (LXC).
One main design goal was to make administration as easy as possible. You can use Proxmox VE on a single node, or assemble a cluster of many nodes. All management tasks can be done using our web-based management interface, and even a novice user can setup and install Proxmox VE within minutes.
