Hi, As the title says, I'm planning to use Proxmox in my homelab and wondering if anyone has done something like this before. Been using Proxmox alot but my current setup is a ESXi-box on i5-3470 with VT-d, running passthrough to a FreeNAS VM with ZFS (mirrored+SSD cache) and back to the ESXi host via iSCSI. Since ZFS is kinda RAM-demanding and I max the Gbit-switch I would like to move away from this setup. NIC-teaming and a new switch might be the solution if Proxmox can't handle it. Scenario; Proxmox with 2x mechanical drives and one SSD. Is it possible to setup local storage, software RAID1/0 with SSD cache to store the VM's? I'm quite novice when it comes to linux server administration as a whole. An answer like "just go with mdadm and flashcache and then move the vmstorage" won't create any magic on my side, but of course a perfectly accepted answer. I'm happy to learn but probably need som help down the road. Please share your knowledge and start the discussion !
