Same here, using Proxmox in produxion on Dell, HP Proliant and for a few months on Acer Altos,

no issues at all.

Our company, 200 users, used to use Redhat and Centos in the passed, but at the moment we more and more use Debian

on our servers and i do not understand why you think it is not Ent. ready. I have a lot more faith in Debian than Centos,

but i think it is more a personal matter. I think it's not fair to blame an OS if the problem is maybe more you're own knowledge.


Why do you think that projects like eg. Vyatta choose Debian?

I have used Xen for a about a year, but so far Proxmox (openvz and kvm) is very competitve.

For most people it is quite useable already but I agree KVM  could be more stable especially for windows multiprocessor guests and virtio (also I am waiting for the windows virtio block drivers).

You should blame Dell that they do not support a huge part of the Linux market. But as far as I know, they are working to support Ubuntu which is more or less identical to Debian/Proxmox VE Kernels.
