Hilights of this release include’;

  • Ceph has now been integrated to the Proxmox web GUI as well as a new CLI command created for creating Ceph clusters. See my post on Ceph storage in Proxmox for more information.
  • SPICE is now fully integrated as the console viewer however the original Java console is still the default. SPICE supports multiple monitors and all recent guest operating systems.
  • QEMU has been updated with better backups and a few new supported guest hardware devices, mostly for compatibility with VMWare.

You can download the ISO from Proxmox directly at the following link:

proxmox logo gradA new release of Proxmox is now available, release 3.1.

The highlights of this new release are:

  • A new storage plugin for GlusterFS.

Proxmox storage typesThis is a new storage plugin which can be used to add usable storage to your Proxmox host. GlusterFS is an open source, distributed file system with potential to house a huge capacity of data.

GlusterFS is key to open source, scalable and highly available storage spanning many servers, and even data centres.

See their About page for more information: http://www.gluster.org/about/

  • The SPICE protocol has been implemented as a technology preview. Whilts it is not recommended for production systems, you can see what’s in store in the Proxmox roadmap.
  • One of the most dramatic changes of Proxmox 3.1 is that the package repositories have been split into subscription and none-subscription. The subscription repository is the only repository recommended for a production server, however it requires a paid subscription with Proxmox to access it. See this thread for more information on the new Updates GUI page.
