Choosing a virtualized environment

Unread post by gusto » Sun Aug 18, 2019 5:31 am

I decide which Virtual Enviroment to install.
I tried Proxmox and it installed without problems.
Now I want to install Citrix Hypervisor, but generally does not want to boot from USB.
Then I tried vmware, but there is a problem with NIC and MVNE https://www.sqlpassion.at/archive/2018/ ... odroid-h2/

Currently on another HW I have installed proxmox and I'm very happy, but I want to try vmware and citrix (xen server).
Does it make sense to worry about installing vmware and citrix hypervisor?
Does it work correctly for someone?

I simply use Debian Buster with KVM virtualization with libvirt.
So many features for free, like live migration from one system to another.
And it's basically build-in in all Linux Distribution.

I use it at work for test environments. Testing new Software and how to upgrade certain servers that we have.
It's quite useful in that matter with snapshots and all.

VMware works, I have a 3 x H2 cluster working. Also had vSAN running as POC but removed vSAN as it consumes 10gb of ram per hosts.

You need to create a custom install that has the realtek drivers.

NVME works without extra drivers on 6.7 update 2.

@127.0.0.1: what is vmware licensing for home users? Do you still need to pay a fixed license per cpu? In this case the H2 is not very cost-effective.

@meveric: care to do a write-up introduction about kvm in odroid magazine? Things like installation, vm configuration, network setup, vm migration, etc.
I too am stuck with legacy systems at work that need to be migrated to vm...

Hello. I am looking in to add openstack as a ground for my infrastructure. I have read slot lately about it and it's a good base to build Frome.

To install openstack you need to have a operating system.

So I find the best suited one for me.

I going to install maas to all bearmetal so I have the control.
Link : it's coming.

OS going to be Ubunto server becous it moste user-friendly for openstack at this point.

Investigation is into its place for checking if a Raspberry pi 4 can Handel the jobb as controller.

Not sure, time is very limited, and the ODROID is in my office at work. Not sure how my boss would like me to scribble ODROID Magazine article at work :D
But if you want I can drop you some notes on how to do things (it's actually quite easy) and with some testing it should be fairly simple to get started and maybe you would be able to write something for the Magazine instead.

Hello
So I have successfully installed ESXi 6.7 up2 and make sure everything works (Network 1000Mbit OK). I do not own the M2.NVMe disk yet.
Now I'm trying to install Citrix Hipervisor 8.0.0, but the system doesn't boot at all. Could someone install Citrix Hipervisor 8.0.0?
