    [TUTORIAL] Proxmox Ceph Mirroring - Snapshot Mode

    Like i said in some of my previous posts i have tried ceph mirroring before, and followed the instructions available here. This worked great, but only if you just used virtual machines, and not containers. So this does not work with container disks, because you would need to enable the...

    Does Replication + Mirroring makes sense?

    Hi all! Thanks for this amazing project. I have been "studying" Proxmox for one or two months and I quite like it. I have been wondering about storage replication and disk mirroring for a setup. Does it make sense to have mirrored disks AND do storage replication on top of it. For...
