  1. Increase Partition size

    Hi guys, I recently bought a server on which I run Proxmox for virtualization. First I installed Proxmox directly on my 1TB SSD, but then realized that I was losing almost 100GB for the "local" partition, but I wanted to use the fast SSD storage for the "local-lvm", i.e. the VMs themselves...

  7. ZFS-RAID10 vs Software RAID10 in a RAM limited environment

    Hello, I'm deploying a new cluster with 3 machines, each one having 64GB RAM + 2x512GB NVMe SSD. The VMs that will run on the cluster will use about 70-80% of available RAM, so there will be little spare RAM left (4-8 GB). I would like to use ZFS, as it's supported by Proxmox, but I'm afraid...

  13. Please can someone review my Proxmox plans/storage layout.

    I've been reading a lot of posts about storage layout options. My general takeaway is that: 1. The answer always comes down to requirements. 2.
