Without more information that's hard to tell. For example we don't know if you have actually run Proxmox VE, VMware ESXi, Citrix XenServer (or any other bare metal virtual infrastructure) and what your experiences were with any of those. Next what would be the main reason to choose Proxmox VE over any of the others? (absence of) Licensing costs? Hardware and software support? Support Desk? Any particular features the virtualization guests require? Also note the "Web Server: apache, tomcat, MySQL Server: mysql" part looks nice but it really doesn't convey what you actually will be running? Is this a current hardware setup you'll be P2V'ing? Are there any bottlenecks? If so, are they hardware based or software? Else, if this is a new platform, how do you know what resources it needs? With respect to the rest of the software, if you look at iredmail you see it makes use of existing Open Source software, that's a good thing, but you could be installing and configuring those packages yourself, right?.. As far as your commercial backup software goes, have you researched which software offers which features you need? If you don't please do, preferably taking into account your experience with existing customers and their backup needs.

Without more information that's hard to tell: if you have practical experience with all those products, yes, else, "it depends" ;-p

As per my suggestion for VM infrastructure you should go with xen server 6.2 .
which is easy to use and freeware. i am using this one from last 2 year.
only for Patching purpose you need to use command prompt which is peace of cake.

What virtualization stack do you have experience with then? I'm just asking because while most stacks offer a tool kit and a GUI it's not like a mouse-drive User Interface alone can replace practical knowledge...

Dunno. I thought in terms of market share it was VMware ESXi at the #1 spot, then Microsoft Hyper-V and then Citrix XenServer...

You should tell us more what you're doing and why. That may help.
