Cisco UCS FlexFlash


Sep 30, 2019
Hi Folks,

Wondering about installing Proxmox onto a Cisco UCS server using the FlexFlash SD cards - is this possible / supported / recommended?

This is how you (can) install VMware on the UCS platform so the Hypervisor boots from SD and runs in memory.

is this possible / supported / recommended?
Yes / No / No
You will destroy the SD card in under a half year.
Proxmox VE has local logging and so the are many data written.
These SD cards are made to read many/write little environments.
Yes, it is.
There are some threads here in the forum which expain how.


The Proxmox community has been around for many years and offers help and support for Proxmox VE, Proxmox Backup Server, and Proxmox Mail Gateway.
We think our community is one of the best thanks to people like you!
