After using ESXi for almost a decade, and around 3 for Snakeoil development, I decided it’s time to move on to other hypervisors with my new Ryzen server.
I want dedicated hypervisors running on bare metal, so the two leading contenders are XCP-ng and Proxmox VE . At the time I tried searching online but just could not find a definitive answer for my use case.
In the end I decided to go with XCP-ng first and see how it goes. After about 5 months of use, I decided to try out Proxmox VE. Here’s my experience so far with XCP-ng and now PVE.
I’ve been through a lot of Raspberry Pi cases over the years (2, 3, 4), from all acrylics to metal. While they all do the job of protecting the electronics, none of them are pretty. Some of the cases are so poorly designed using the the Pi becomes a pain. Granted that’s all my fault as I chose the cheapest items with the quickest delivery from e-Bay.
These are mistakes I meant to fix. And I did so with the Argon One (AUD$47.50). Money well spent as this is the best Pi enclosure I experienced by far.
