If you have to stick with 2 servers, personally I would go for zfs as your
storage. Storage replication using zfs in proxmox has been made super

This is asynchronous though, unlike DRBD. You would have to manually start
your VM's should the "live" node go down and the data will be out of date
depending on how frequently you've told it to sync. IMO, this is a decent
setup if you are limited to 2 servers and is very simple.

Then you also get the great features such as high performance snapshots
(LVM sucks at this..), clones and even really simple replication to another
server (IE a disaster recovery location) with pve-zsync. Not to mention all
the other features of zfs - compression, checksumming etc (google it if you
don't know).
