[PVE-User] Cluster PVE and MS SQL Server

Gilberto, in this case you are comparing apples to oranges.
PVE cluster and MSSQL cluster do very different things, solve very 
different problems.

If you only think of MSSQL Cluster as high-availbility, then:
* PVE HA is easier to setup, easier to manage, much cheaper to buy & run 
if you already have the shared-storage hardware (or you use CEPH).
* MSSQL cluster has faster ("zero-downtime") failover, and many extra 
features that you don't mention - but costs twice as much, you must use 
2 x Enterprise license (AFAIK), and is complicated to set up.

Newer versions of MSSQL are easier to set up, but newer versions of PVE 
are easier to set up, too...

Nothing stops you from running MSSQL cluster on top of PVE HA-enabled 
cluster to get the benefits of both!
