Proxmox Virtual Environment is a powerful and easy to use virtualization platform with many features. Virtual machine templates help to minimize the amount of time spent building new instances, and in this video we’ll take a look at how you can utilize Ubuntu’s cloud images to automate the process of deploying new Linux instances.
Proxmox Backup Server is a custom Linux distro that you can run on your server to have it serve as a backup endpoint. It integrates quickly and easily with Proxmox Virtual Environment, making it a great solution to back up your virtual machines and containers. In addition to that, it can also be used to store non-VM backups too, so running Proxmox Virtual Environment is NOT a requirement. In this video, I’ll teach you everything you need in order to get started with Proxmox Backup Server.

In the final episode of LearnLinuxTV’s Proxmox VE tutorial series, we explore the concept of high availability. This will ensure that our most important virtual machines are always running, even if one of the nodes in our cluster stops responding.
Setting up a Proxmox VE cluster enables you to benefit from multiple servers to share load between, and also gives you access to live migration. In this video, we’ll create our very own cluster and add two additional Proxmox VE servers.
Shared storage enables you to set up a single storage repository, and provide access to that repository from multiple servers. If you eventually set up a Proxmox cluster, then shared storage gives you even more flexibility. In this video, you’ll see the process of setting up NFS shares in a NAS (TrueNAS used as an example) and then adding those shares to Proxmox VE.
