How to install Proxmox onto a computer ?

Hi Experts,
In the company we use proxmox for virtualization.
At home I want to install a test system.
I am an expert for vmware but not for Proxmox.

How to do this ?

hmm, this sounds not good.
no HA
no FT
no migration

Is it possible to setup a cluster with proxmox ?
What happens when one host goes down ?
Without HA it makes no sense, right ?

For a home system, it's adequate.

If a Host goes down, all your VMs stop working, and you have an outage!

if your requirements for your company is

HA, FT, P2V select VMware vSphere

only VMware vSphere has FT.
