Disk at the Datacenter level without specifying space

I'm a beginner in proxmox, so excuse me if I'm not expressing myself well. On one physical server I have:

Proxmox VE 8.0-2

RAID1 ZFS 960GB (boot/proxmox):
0: Samsung 960GB 1: Samsung 960GB

RAIDZ2 ZFS 6TB (data):
2: Western Digital 2TB 3: Western Digital 2TB 4: Western Digital 2TB 5: Western Digital 2TB 6: Western Digital 2TB

What would I like to achieve?
How do I create a disk array for data without specifying space (full 6TB) at the "Datacenter" level.
Any VM or CT I create will be able to use the data on this disk array.
(VM and CT will be created equally on this 6TB disk)

I don't get the question. Do you want to store files and folders on that "data" ZFS pool (for example to bind-mount them into LXCs) or VMs/LXCs or both?
Can you explain a bit more what you mean by "Datacenter level"?
