Hardware RAID is not supporting to create OSD disk or zfs


New Member

I am working on configuring HA cluster with 3 node setup with the following configuration
4 x 1GB port NIC
600GB HDD for OS Installation
6 TB disk [ Hardware RAID] for proxmox vms

I am planning to configure ceph or lvm shared storage or zfs to achieve High Availability. As i have configured 14 disks in Hardware RAID, the above options are not supporting.

Can anyone help to achieve HA in any way with RAID.

zfs and lvm are local storage types, so this is unusable if you want HA.

Ceph works with HA.

Both ceph and zfs do not like HW RAID. Instead, simply use single disks.
