Proxmox VE 3.1 released!

We just released Proxmox VE 3.1, introducing great new features and services. We included SPICE, GlusterFS storage plugin and the ability to apply updates via GUI (including change logs).

As an additional service for our commercial subscribers, we introduce the Proxmox VE Enterprise Repository. This is the default and recommended repository for production servers.

To access the Enterprise Repository, each Proxmox VE Server needs a valid Subscription Key - these subscriptions start now at EUR 4,16 per months (was EUR 9,90).

There is no change in licensing (AGPL v3), also packages for non-subscribers are still available.

A big Thank-you to our active community for all feedback, testing, bug reporting and patch submissions.

Information in German:

Der Constantinus Award ist Österreichs großer IT- und Beraterpreis, der heuer bereits zum siebenten Mal verliehen wird.

Updated Cyan Secure Web (1.6.4) and Acquia Drupal (1.2.8) Appliances

We just released two updated Appliances for Proxmox VE:

What is special here?

Both appliances are built and tested from the Proxmox team but also tested and certified from the vendor - Acquia and Cyan Networks. For both appliances you need a commercial subscription but therefore you have support from the Proxmox platform and the application vendor - that's a big advantage and one reason why software from Redmond is so successful in the enterprise world. With Proxmox VE you can also get this with open source based Linux software.

We used the Debian_Appliance_Builder to create both and we encourage other open source and commercial Linux application vendors to jump in into this successful way to distribute software to the enterprise.
