VIENNA, October 24, 2012 - Proxmox Server Solutions, developer of the open-source server vitualization platform, today released Proxmox Virtual Environment 2.2. The newest version of Proxmox VE enables live snapshots for KVM guests and was updated to the stable RHEL-6.x-Kernel 2.6.32-042. The update to Proxmox VE 2.2 also includes KVM in version 1.2.0 and OpenVZ 4.0.
Proxmox Virtual Environment is a complete open-source virtualization platform which combines KVM full virtualization with container-based virtualization from OpenVZ. With the new live snapshots feature Proxmox VE users can preserve the state of a KVM virtual machine and roll back to it whenever they like. A live snapshot includes the content of the virtual machine memory, virtual machine settings, and the state of all the virtual disks. When rolling back to a taken snapshot, all the memory, the virtual disks and other settings of the virtual machine can be restored.
"Proxmox Virtual Environment 2.2 is the open-source alternative to commercial VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM or Citrix XenServer", says Martin Maurer, CEO of Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH. Proxmox Server Solutions offers regular software updates as well as commercial support subscriptions. Help is also available on the Proxmox support forum and the Proxmox VE Wiki.
