I know its advised to run on 2 proxy servers, but in case someone is using a single proxy server, how can one be prepared if that server fails or crashes ? Do doing backup of /etc/swift be sufficient and restoring it on a new server ?

How can I be prepared incase my proxy server fails ?

Having backup of files will be helpful in restoring on a new server. You can refer for more information :)

Thanks, I was earlier planning for a simple backup and restore but now I am actually thinking to host my controller and swift proxy server on a Proxmox VM, that way I can backup the whole VM's image itself and restore it when needed. Does it sound proper ?

No, that is not possible.
