I’ve received this news from proxmox press office, I really like their effort and their product and so I’ve decided to post their press release that celebrate their 5th anniversary:
Proxmox Virtual Environment, the open-source server vitualization platform, is celebrating its 5th anniversary today. When Vienna Proxmox Server Solutions launched the first version of Proxmox VE V0.9 on April 15, 2008 – exactly five years ago – the software was the first open-source solution providing an integrated GUI for KVM and container-virtualization. With this approach IT administrators can manage their KVM and OpenVZ containers easily via a web-based interface. In the last five years Proxmox VE has become the mainstream open-source business alternative to commercial virtualization platforms like VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM or Citrix XenServer.
According to Proxmox, today 40.000 hosts in more than 140 countries worldwide use Proxmox VE – with a continued growth of its user base. The GUI is available in more than 16 languages and the support forum states over 20,000 members. Proxmox Server Solutions offers several levels of support subscription plans for business-use, ranging between 120 and 800 Euros per year.
