comment How can I reconfigure a Linux guest in Proxmox to use a virtio-based HDD instead of IDE?
@MichaelHampton I said I didn't find it for what I talk about in my question: Hard Disk Drives. I did find it for NICs.

@MichaelHampton I'd love to hear more about that, because I didn't find any. It does permit changing the driver of the NIC via the web GUI.

@MichaelHampton Well, how to change it to virtio such that I can go on with my life is precisely what this question is about. :-)

comment Is it viable to run very lightweight services straight off a Raspberry Pi 2?
Another thing - if any of our servers would stop working, of course that wouldn't bring the entire company down. In fact, most people could continue working -- we actually had that in the past and it turned out that a malfunctioning SQL server and a loss of Internet connectivity for 48 hours summed up to be mostly an annoyance (though, maybe it would have been a bigger issue if the outage persisted).

I find it interesting that many answers to my question address the comparatively poor reliability of RPi systems, but you also mention that "Failure" itself isn't always a concern, it's the consequences of failure, and recovery from it, which cause problems. With this in mind, maybe a malfunctioning RPi could simply be replaced with a spare one, i.e. I'd have five ready-made "VPN" RPis and another five which all can act as IRC servers etc.?

accepted How do you avoid that server documentation gets out of sync with the actual setup?

Thanks! So your arguments are reliability and scalability - they are exactly my concerns as well, but I lacked specific expertise to back this up.
