There are some pretty big changes in Proxmox version 4 which really warrant the new 4.0 version increment. See my other blog post on the initial 4.0 BETA 1 release notes for the bigger picture, or the below bullet points for the latest changes.

  • Improvements to the new container engine based on LXC, especially the integration into the storage model.
  • Migration path from OpenVZ to LXC
  • Linux Kernel 4.2
  • Ceph Server packages (0.94.x – hammer release)
  • Embedded NoVNC console
  • Improved IPv6 support
  • Redesigned HA
  • Countless bug fixes

You can download the ISO from their download site and install it onto a new machine.

No support for 2-Node cluster – the main disadvantage of new version in my opinion.

    Is it not possible to make a 2-node cluster by adding an extra vote to one node to establish quorum in V4.0?

Why did they dump OpenVZ for LXC? I’ve been using OVZ for over 10 years (via proxmox since ~3years) and I am perfectly happy with it. I don’t see a benefit purpose using LXC.
Is there any alternative to proxmox (which uses OVZ?)
