I need virtualization system, based on kvm or Xen with Web interface, or windows gui, which support cloning vms. One more point is that I can not install it from iso (server is located in hetzner). Proxmox is almost what I need, but it does not support cloning vms. Any recommendations?

Dekstop virtualization or server virtualization? – Farhan Nov 26 '11 at 14:12
Server, with windows and Linux guest support. – user59178 Nov 26 '11 at 16:24
What is so difficult about cloning? dd will do the job. After that you will have to change names, IPs and in the case of windows SIDs. – Nils Sep 1 '12 at 21:10

You can try the new RHEV 3 - the current beta is free to try. For a standalone machine there's also the virt-clone tool which is a part of libvirt. There is no web manager as such, but if you can ssh to the host you can either use the CLI or ssh -X and use virt-manager

RHEV seems to be right what I need. Thanks, I'll try it. – user59178 Nov 27 '11 at 6:33

I use and am quite happy with Citrix Xen Center, it comes with a very nice gui for windows.

It has a free version and a paying version that has more features (live migration).
