+1 for ZFS over iSCSI using an Omnios+Napp-it storage system.

Keep in mind that for low-budget needs you may use 2 Proxmox nodes with 
local ZFS storage (hyperconvergence !) and backup from primary by using 
ZFS incremental snapshots.
Proxmox suppports local ZFS storage from 3.4 version 
(https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Storage:_ZFS#Limit_ZFS_memory_usage)
Pros:
-Much lower budget since you do not need 10G separate network for 
hypervisor-storage communication, and additional nodes for storage!
Cons:
-No possibility for live migration since there is not a shared storage.
-Reduced flexibility since hypervisor and storage are in the same system.

Regards,
Dimitris
