Specifically, most other virtualisation platforms require you to have 
shared storage backed onto a SAN, and/or require a single machine to 
'control' the cluster.

Avoiding this tends to require that you buy two SANs and configure them 
to replicate between each other, and tends to require that you 
virtualise the 'control' machine and make that highly available too.

 From what I've read, proxmox will tend to make no 
single-point-of-failure virtualisation platforms easier to deploy 
without buying vast quantities of enterprise-grade equipment.
