proxmox, a side project

After the pfsense router upgrade i installed proxmox on the retired AMD E-350D with 16GB DDR3 RAM, which is a debian based distro aiming to provide a virtualization platform and is accessible via web ui. The concept of linked clones is nice to see – in vmware esxi this is only supported for VDI deployments as far as i know – which saves space with homogenous environments. Also the KSM sharing seemed far better than the implementation vmware uses. Another topic is backups, which are only full backups that can be compressed. There is a patch that provides differential backup support in the web ui, but i dont need backups for this small server as all vms on this server are non-productive vms that are backuped once to the storageserver and if somethings fails its not that important.
