Proxmox Virtual Environment
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.

Compute, network, and storage in a single solution

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?

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.

Central Management

To manage all tasks of your virtual data center, you can use the central, web-based management interface. The whole functionality of the web interface is also accessible via CLI or REST API, which can be used to automate tasks.


While many people start with a single node, Proxmox Virtual Environment can scale out to a large set of clustered nodes. The cluster stack is fully integrated and ships with the default installation.

Proxmox VE High Availability (HA) Cluster

A multi-node Proxmox VE Cluster enables the creation of highly available virtual servers. The Proxmox VE HA Cluster is based on proven Linux HA technologies, providing stable and reliable HA service.

The entire Proxmox VE HA Cluster can be easily configured from the integrated web-based user interface.
