I have 1 server where I need to install as
Proxmox Virtual Environment for creating a pair of vps servers.
But also install Backup Server to copy other servers that are not in the office.
Tell me how to install everything correctly?
Start to install Virtual Environment and create a virtual server and install Backup Server or parallel them.
 
Both is possible. Either install PVE bare metal and then add the "proxmox-backup-server" package so you can run PVE + PBS in parallel or alternatively install PBS in a VM. Benefit of the first one would be that PVE + PBS could share the same disks and that there is no virtualization overhead. On the other hand this makes it harder to backup your PBS and you always have to upgrade your PVE + PBS at the same time (so you for example could't upgrade PVE from 7 to 8 but stick with PBS 2).

At the moment, the server is still going, there are a couple of days. Therefore, they will put everything from 0
I didn't think about the update
Well, I will have a separate disk pool for storing backups, so I can throw it directly into virtualization and mount it there.
