Proxmox will run fine on a OpenMediaVault system, witht he exception that iscsi may not work with the custom kernel.
Install Proxmox and OVM, bare metal, on the same physical box?
I've never considered a setup like that.
For this specific configuration I have have 3 physical servers, 2 are setup as Proxmox hypervisors and 1 is setup as a NAS. I'm slowly inching towards a High Availability setup with Proxmox and unfortunately I've spent an extraordinary amount of time debugging the slow write speeds with nas4free/ZFS/NFS.
I loved the idea of ZFS, but the incredible amount of time I've spent tracking down the write speed issue is more than ridiculous. That is what brought me to OMV. Oh, by the way, writes speeds over NFS with OMV are fantastic! Also, I had two 3T SATA-III drives managed under the LVM in OMV. My third drive arrived in the mail, plugged it in, and a few clicks later the filesystem was resizing to accommodate the new drive. Fantastic!
First exposure to UNIX was a Slackware install from fifty eight 3.5" floppy disks created in a RS/6000 running AIX 3.1.2. I was surrounded by X-Windows, Motif GUI, NFS, distributed file systems, token-ring and I "upgraded" to Windows 3.1.
