The Proxmox Virtual Environment

Compute, network, and storage in a single solution.

Proxmox Virtual Environment is a complete, open-source server management platform for enterprise virtualization. It tightly integrates the KVM hypervisor and Linux Containers (LXC), software-defined storage and networking functionality, on a single platform. With the integrated web-based user interface you can manage VMs and containers, high availability for clusters, or the integrated disaster recovery tools with ease.

The enterprise-class features and a 100% software-based focus make Proxmox VE the perfect choice to virtualize your IT infrastructure, optimize existing resources, and increase efficiencies with minimal expense. You can easily virtualize even the most demanding of Linux and Windows application workloads, and dynamically scale computing and storage as your needs grow, ensuring that your data center adjusts for future growth.

Ready to build an open and future-proof data center with Proxmox VE?


By combining two virtualization technologies on a single platform, Proxmox VE is giving maximum flexibility to your production environment. Use KVM full virtualization for Windows and Linux images, and lightweight containers to run conflict-free Linux applications.

Software Training

Master the concepts and components of Proxmox VE with our hands-on training courses. Grow your skills and learn everything you need to know for deploying a single node setup or a large set of clustered nodes with HA clustering, live migration, and Ceph or ZFS storage.

Enterprise Support

Proxmox VE is a perfect fit for your enterprise environment. The production-ready feature-set is simple to manage, and helps you to increase efficiency and reduce complexity in your data center. Enhanced commercial support services and trainings allow you to keep your business running.

Proxmox Virtual Environment is a powerful open-source server virtualization platform to manage two virtualization technologies – KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) for virtual machines and LXC for containers – with a single web-based interface. It also integrates out-of-the-box-tools for configuring high availability between servers, software-defined storage, networking, and disaster recovery.

Server Virtualization

Proxmox Virtual Environment is based on Debian GNU/Linux and uses a custom Linux Kernel. The Proxmox VE source code is free, released under the GNU Affero General Public License, v3 (GNU AGPLv3). This means that you are free to use the software, inspect the source code at any time and contribute to the project yourself. You can download the Proxmox VE ISO installer or inspect the code in the public code repository (git).

Using open-source software guarantees full access to all functionality, as well as a high level of reliability and security. We encourage everybody to contribute to the Proxmox VE project, while Proxmox, the company behind it, ensures that the product meets consistent, enterprise-class quality criteria.

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)

KVM is the industry-leading Linux virtualization technology for full virtualization. It’s a kernel module, that’s merged into the mainline Linux kernel, and it runs with near-native performance on all x86 hardware with virtualization support—either Intel VT-x or AMD-V.

With KVM you can run both Windows and Linux in virtual machines (VMs), where each VM has private, virtualized hardware: a network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc. Running several applications in VMs on a single system, enables you to save power and reduce costs, while at the same time, giving you the flexibility to build an agile and scalable software-defined data center, that meets your business demands.

Proxmox VE has included KVM support since the beginning of the project, back in 2008 (that is since version 0.9beta2).

Container-based virtualization

Container-based virtualization technology is a lightweight alternative to full machine virtualization, because it shares the host system’s kernel.

Linux Containers (LXC)

LXC is an operating-system-level virtualization environment for running multiple, isolated Linux systems on a single Linux control host. LXC works as a userspace interface for the Linux kernel containment features. Users can easily create and manage system or application containers with a powerful API and simple tools.
