I migrated a "older" VMware Server to Proxmox during the last month
Migration to OpenVZ - Java Stack
1:1 Migration to a LVM based KVM (Windows & Linux)
only data migration - new KVM with Centos 6 (broken update path for 5.x)

This are customers VM - therefore the mix of OS.

I am really happy with Proxmox - very good perfromance und very stable. Backups per snapshot works fines!

This a very good piece of software. Congratulations to the developer!

One feature which is missing - snapshot function like VMWare. I don't need a so elaborated version with trees of snapshots.

A single snapshot would be OK. e.g upgrading some VMs isn't realy funny. Snapshots would simplfy my life.



Schedule a backup of the VM before upgrading it. Backups from LVM storage support snapshot mode: the VM doesn't stop during backup.
