    Hello all,

    we are going to start with our ceph cluster soon.
    in the beginning we will only use 3 nodes (we will expand system later with more nodes).
    if we only use 2 disks per node for ceph your documentation tells that this is not good practice - so it would be a possibility to use 4 disks per node instead of 2 -"https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/chapter-pveceph.html" - We recommend a Ceph cluster size, starting with 12 OSDs, distributed evenly among your, at least three nodes (4 OSDs on each node)..

    Could you plase tell us in detail which kind of issues could occur if we only use 2 disks per node because it would take some months untill we would add more nodes?

    BR, Alex
