Re: Virtualization with CentOS

Having a PUBLICLY facing full blown distro is a security nightmare waiting to happen, adding a bunch of guest VM's just increases the "ouch factor". Either run a "real" firewall in front of your VM Server (like PFSense or RouterOS or ASA or whatever flavor of dedicated firewall hardware you like) o...

Re: Virtualization with CentOS

Take a look at Proxmox https://www.proxmox.com/proxmox-ve/comparison Personally, I avoid running a FULL BLOWN Distro as the HOST, use a bare metal hypervisor and run ALL systems as VM Guests.

Virtualization with CentOS

I'm planning on getting 3-4 virtual machines on my new CentOS server. (High performing i7, 32gb ram etc.)
