    Policy-driven snapshot management and replication tools. Using ZFS for underlying next-gen storage. (Btrfs support plans are shelved unless and until btrfs becomes reliable.) Primarily intended for Linux, but BSD use is supported and reasonably frequently tested.

    Anything related to providing a service to clients (file shares, web server, whatever), yes - that should be in a VM or container. But there are things you'll end up having to install directly in Proxmox if they're needed for managing or monitoring your server. For example, hddtemp and lm-sensors for monitoring temperatures, sanoid for automating ZFS snapshots, a client for your UPS (if you have one) to ensure clean shutdowns, etc. The key is to have some way of repeatably installing and configuring those packages in case you need to reinstall the whole server, whether it's a config management system like Ansible or a simple bash script.
