VIENNA, Austria – December 13, 2016 – Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH today released version 4.4 of its server virtualization platform Proxmox Virtual Environment (VE). In addition to numerous improvements and updates the open source solution Proxmox VE brings a new dashboard for Ceph and cluster.
The new Ceph dashboard gives the administrator a comprehensive overview of the Ceph status, the Ceph monitors, the Ceph OSDs, and the current performance and utilization of the Ceph cluster. Together with the existing disk management the new dashboard simplifies the ease-of-use and administration of Ceph storage and paves the way to the complete software-defined data center.
The creations of unprivileged containers moves from the command line to the GUI. Many LXC templates for various operating system have been updated. Another improvement of the new version Proxmox VE 4.4 is the CPU Core Limitation which helps distributing the performance between containers. The new function Container Restart Migration will help with server moves and maintenance work on the host.
High Availability Stack
The Proxmox VE HA Stack brings new functions, many of them have been implemented and improved in the HA Web Interface at the suggestion of the community: The two tabs "resource" and "HA status" have been merged. A consistent view for the current HA status with the ability to edit and add HA resources has been added, and a new HA group editor now allows users to set priorities directly from the GUI. All details of these changes and improvements in the HA stack are already accessible in the reference documentation directly via the web interface (via the help button).
Another new feature in Proxmox VE 4.4 is a dedicated live migration network (via command line).
Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH has also recently expanded its partner network and welcomes the German company Thomas Krenn AG as new technology partner. Thomas Krenn AG offers customers Proxmox VE Certified Hardware.
Proxmox VE 4.4 is available now and ready for download. The open source solution Proxmox VE is licensed under the free software license GNU Affero GPL, v3. For companies, Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH offers commercial support subscriptions starting at EUR 64,90 per year and CPU.
