    LVM Thin vs ZFS root pool

    I have a 2U server with a rear drive caddy that supports 2x2.5" drives. I also have 2x 500GB HDDs that I sourced from older laptops. So I thought I'd setup a ZFS mirror as my boot pool and also use the remaining space for my VMs as they would be faster since they would be local. Secondly I can...

    Any way around raw storage on container creation?

    I was wondering why Proxmox defaults to a raw rootfs when I create a new container. In fact, there seems to be no way around it. However, I really want to be able to directly access my files. They are on a nfs share backed by zfs so the raw image keeps me from using snapshot, rollback, clone...
