Disk for os?

Hello!!! how are you?

I hope you all are okay.

I have a mini pc in which I want to install pbs.

but enterprice sata ssd drives cannot be placed in the mini pc.
It only accepts m2 disks.

pbs wears out ssds as much as proxmox does?

Or can I install the OS on a consumer grade nvme m2 drive?

You can get enterprise NVMes just as easy as SATA SSDs.

PBS logs and writes a lot less to the disk, but you should still use enterprise SSDs (SATA, SAS or M.2).
This is especially important when using ZFS for your root.
