Overview #

Proxmox VE (Virtual Environment) is an open-source server virtualization management platform. It allows you to create and manage virtual machines (VMs) and containers on a cluster of physical servers. Proxmox VE is based on Debian Linux and uses KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) as the hypervisor and LXC (Linux Containers) for lightweight virtualization.
