Which is a best hypervisor for vitalisation on dedicated linux server from below

Xen, Proxmox, VMWare EXSi

Please just do not provide just name, justify why?
At the moment, Proxmox is the best because you can create LXC containers and KVM virtual servers. It support several storage solution, including LVM-thin and ZFS.
And you can setup a HA Cluster for free, when it cost at least 500$ with VMware.

VMware is only good if you have the funds to pay for it, using a viable option for big corporations as they want an enterprise product. We personally use and like XEN. Its very easy to work with and incredibly reliable, it also helps that it's one of the most supported virtualizations among control panels, addons and other tools.

That would heavily depend on your requirements, what are your requirements?

VMware is the best virtualization solution in the industry but you have to spend more money for VMware. Next we recommend Xen virtualization because its use separate memory and processor for Hyper-visor/Node and best virtualization but you must need a control panel like solusvm or onapp or xencenter to manage VMs in Xen virtualazion if you are planning to sell VPS.

Proxmox is based on KVM virtualization and container-based virtualization and manages KVM virtual machines, Linux containers (LXC), storage, virtualized networks, and HA clusters. If you are looking for a Free, it would be better. you need to spend money for subscription if you need support from them and exclusive access to the enterprise repository, stable updates and enhanced security.

VMware is the best virtualization ? VMware is not even able to provide a fully functional HTML5 interface for vCenter, it still require to use a heavy flash interface on a product sold for $1000+.

Proxmox VE is free, provide natively an AngularJS interface, you can use LXC templates to deploy servers in few seconds, and host updates doesn't require to reboot your host during 15 minutes..
With the support of Ceph storage, ZFS and LVM-thin, Proxmox VE is really a better choice than VMware currently.

I think that other virtualization technologies would not even match VMware's ESXi and VMware's functionality. It is true what @VirtuBox that VMware charges for licenses, but any top quality product costs something. As far as for ProxMox, it is very incorrect to compare with to VMware, just because ProxMox is management interface for KVM and Linux Containers, it is not a virtualization technology, itself!

Yes, Proxmox is not a virtualization technology, but it's build with open-source virtualization technologies and that's not an issue at all. All VMware technologies are proprietary and that's why they are slower than the competition since few years. Because VMware was the best virtualization solution few years ago that's true, but at the moment, to host linux VM, KVM provide better performance , especially in multi-core process and Windows run perfectly on KVM with the VirtIO drivers.

Proxmox VE 5.0 is already available in beta, with some features like :
- live migration with local storage
- Cloudinit support

And with all the storage supported (LVM , NFS, Ceph, GlusterFS, ZFS) and already the ability to setup clusters for HA, I do not see why I should pay 5,995.00$ for a vCenter...

VMware is still a good solution for company who want to build a private Cloud, and that's why OVH has bought a part of the VMware Cloud company, but on the biggest cloud providers, no one use VMware. (OVH, Linode, DigitalOcean, Vultr, AWS, Google Compute)

We use Proxmox and Vmmanager , both of them good. Proxmox has Container-based virtualization and KVM also they have included Firewall

KVM Is our preferred virtualization option as it gives each virtualization there own resources and individuality(lol) . Also an interface is easily built is around it. Proxmox is a tool for virtualization and does only server management. Vmware is great but the cost is only justified if you have a large customer base who can afford the price. I haven't tried the others to comment.
