Last week we’ve added Proxmox VE 3.3. to our Operating system list, you are now able to order this latest version of Promox with instant setup on our website. Since this operating system is completely new we wanted to highlight a few advantages of Promox in this blog.
The latest version of Proxmox comes with many improvements and new features. With this edition you are able to save lots of hardware costs and administrating time. You can now easily virtualize Linux and Windows application workloads plus run containers to run conflict-free Linux applications.
Let’s take a look at the new features of Proxmox:
• Proxmox VE Firewall
• Two-factor authentication
• ZFS storage plugin
• Based on Debian Wheezy 7.6
• Many bug fixes and package updatesOne of the most remarkable features of this release is probably the Proxmox VE. You can easily setup firewall rules for your whole cluster, for each single node, or for containers in virtual machines. The benefit of this system is that it provides much higher bandwidth than an essential firewall solution. The Promox VE firewall comes with features like firewall macros, security groups, IP sets and aliases.Another highlight is the newly integrated two-factor authentication. This will add an extra layer of security to your operating system by introducing a second step to your login to the Proxmoz VE web interface. The Proxmox developers offer two different methods: YubiKey from Yubico and Time Based One-Time Passwords (with OATH). These secure login processes will help to prevent unauthorized persons or programs to access your servers.You can watch the video below to see more details about this latest version of Proxmox.
