My first mini pc running Proxmox. Is there an easy way to test a lot of apps/containers/vm's to test it?

Big time newbie here. I bought my first relatively modest mini pc and would like to load it quickly (with relatively minimal Proxmox knowledge right now) with a suite of apps/container/vm's and or docker containers in order to see how much it can handle. I am just using it as a homelab setup and don't have any business reasons other than discovering new things to do with it. I currently run a Synology NAS with a lot of Media Center docker apps currently.

Is there something I could use to do this? Even a docker stack with 20 or so apps running or something like that? I kind of want to see what this hardware is capable of doing?

The pc is a 12th Gen N95 with 16gb ram.
You can use lxc-containers with templates (that are already there) see. Those apps are more business-related.


For home use, I would start with something like TIPI:
