v14.0 Optimized Builds - Part 2: Containers

Proxmox, OpenNode & Docker

Following close behind the Optimized Builds Part 1 announcement, I am happy to present Part 2: Container builds. Part 2 includes optimized container builds for:

  • ProxmoxVE (PVE) - Debian based open source hypervisor
  • OpenNode - CentOS based open source hypervisor; and
  • Docker - open source container hosting tool.
  • v14.0 Optimized Builds - Part 1: OVA & VMDK

    I am happy to announce the release of our OVA and VMDK VM builds. 14.0 optimized VM builds can be downloaded from their respective appliance pages (eg. LAMP, WordPress Node.js etc). Alternatively you can download the entire library via one of our mirrors.

    Qemu + KVM is the future of open source virtualization

    Open source virtualization has been evolving dramatically over the last few years. Incumbent proprietary platforms such as VMWare still hold the throne in many areas but open source competitors are gaining ground fast on their way to ubiquity. Things are a-changing in the land of virtualization.

    Right now we have three contenders to the (open source) throne battling it out for supremacy:

    • Xen: backed by Citrix
    • VirtualBox: backed by Oracle/Sun
    • KVM: backed by RedHat
