I guess my question is which free solution is better? Which has the least limitations? Which has the easiest upgrade path? Which integrates with public paid clouds like Amazon where if our servers fail we could upload a backup to these online servers? Which supports jumping between hardware in real time?
The best free solution with enterprise level foundation would be PROXMOX.
Check it out its easy to use, easy to install, and works right out the box.
Once you download the ISO
Reboot the server
Access the ip address from a web browser to log in and manage your cloud.
They also built in the ability to download images from the web interface so you can get linux distros free at a click of a button such as:
They even have pre packaged appliances as well.
So if you are looking for a free enterprise level software. Id strongly recommend PROXMOX. You get everything free except support. For free support you can goto their public forum where there developers actually provide free help. If you need instant help purchasing support will help.
