Personal use container??

Hey, which container software would you recommend just for personal use & why? SolusVM or virtualizor, I am also open to opinions for other containers.

    Wait, are you looking for a control panel or trying to decide which virtualization technology to use? Does it have to be a container or would a VM work?

    Proxmox is perfect for personal, and it's free.

    Well I have a server that I am going to use for personal use & I wanted to create VMs on it for whatever my needs are.

    Then don't pay for a control panel, there are plenty of free ones out there that are perfect for personal use. Proxmox, XenServer, and ESXi are all good solutions.

  • run QEMU/libvirt, put on a cluster of coreos/kube in kvm, pretend like you have a cloud

  • Go with Open Source Vistulization Management Platform (Proxmox) if you are going to use /create VMs for personal use.

    -If personal use without the need to run custom kernels, and if you don't need custom TCP settings per instance, then OpenVZ and LXC should be considered. (for their low overhead and for resource-sharing)

    That said, if you go PV (eg, OpenVZ) rather than full virtualization ... odds are you're going to need to do special things by-hand either way [like allowing access to modules]. -- so I'm not sure a GUI manager really helps

  • if you want to virtualize Windows, VMware ESXI better than promox an XenServer

  • Proxmox it's free and easy and stable to use. Most of the dedicated providers have ready installation templates.

  • There's always good old virt-install. If you don't want to learn how to manage it from the command line, virt-manager exists.
