Operating Systems


Maxihost provides a variety of Operating Systems that you can use to create your servers, such as Windows and Linux distributions. You can find all operating systems supported by going to the deploy page.

Custom images

We still don't support custom images, but it's something that's on our roadmap. This will make it possible for you to import your custom images to Maxihost, recreating environments quickly instead of having to install everything from scratch.

If you want to install a custom image, simply deploy your server using an Operating System of your choice and when the server is delivered, use Remote Access to access the IPMI.

With IPMI, you can access your server and reinstall the operating system according to the image of your choice.

It is important to note that Maxihost does not provide support for custom images, and it is up to you to perform maintenance and reinstallation of your image whenever necessary.

Limitations

ESXi

  • No support for Linux bridges
  • Does not allow VMs to use a PortGroup that has a VMK attached to it.
  • No support for custom storage configurations. We extend datastore1 to the full size of the deployment disk. After deployment, you can use VMWare tools to access the other disks.
