Proxmox virtualization manager


How Much Does It Cost?

Proxmox calculates the price of its support products on the basis of CPU sockets. The Standard subscription, which includes access to the Proxmox Enterprise repository, 10 support tickets to the provider, a maximum response time of one business day, and remote support via SSH, costs about EUR33 (~$39) per CPU per month. For double that, you get unlimited support tickets; for EUR20 (~$24), you get three support tickets per year, but no SSH support. All prices are exclusive of VAT.

If you don't want support from Proxmox, you can download the individual components from the local GitHub repository and install them manually [1]. Proxmox offers a trial license [2] that includes all functions and is valid for 30 days, so you know what you are getting yourself into.


Proxmox VE 5.0 is a solid virtualization solution that does not need to hide behind Red Hat and SUSE. If you want to run a small setup, Proxmox VE is far better suited than a classic cloud solution such as OpenStack. The process used for HA of VMs is just as impressive as the attention to detail in many individual Proxmox features. Before resorting to RHEV or SLES, I strongly recommend a test with Proxmox.
