When running Proxmox Backup Server in a production environment, you will need high quality server equipment to ensure that your backed up data is safe.
For a production setup, we recommend dedicated hardware. This is especially important for critical tasks like backups where many hosts/VMs/containers save their critical data.
The minimum requirements for evaluation purposes should never be used in production.
