The Proxmox VE (Virtualization Environment) system isn’t the main thrust of Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH. The company began in 2004 as a provider of anti-spam and anti-virus mail gateway appliances. They currently offer both a virtual appliance and a CD version of their Proxmox Mail Gateway. The CD version of the software must be installed on its own dedicated hardware to create the appliance.

Proxmox VE (VE) offers both OpenVZ containers and full virtualization via KVM in the same system. This flexibility provides you with the native speed of OpenVZ virtual machines and the traditional convenience of fully virtualized operating systems.
