Ceph and Proxmox

Hey Everyone,

I have been using Promxox since v4 and I am just now getting brave enough to try some more advanced stuff. I am wanting to install/deploy Ceph but i have questions about some details. 1st is I have 500 gb nVME storage in each server, however Proxmox splits to 100 gb for local:
and 400 gb for local-lvm:
Which Storage does Ceph use? and How do I apply? I want to make sure I apply this correctly and that I don't kill my system the existing Proxmox Cluster.
So if i have to rebuild that is fine I can do that I have backups of my VMs and containers. I just didn't want to have to do any unnecessary work.

Thanks Everyone,
P.S. Sorry if this is a stupid question.
Yes, you have disk(s) for the OS, and then you need additional disks that can be used as OSDs for Ceph.
