Does the PBS require same storage as the normal proxmox servers?
Currently have mainly lsi cards in IT mode.

Will it work the pbs?

Any suggestions on minimal requirements?, all i could find is 8GB ram, and high grade boot drive

No.

Yes, I have tested PBS with a similar setup on a Dell R410 with 32GB RAM.

For daily use in my private environment I'm using an old Pentium Dual Core w/ 4GB RAM, 4TB WD Red, PBS on top of a standard Debian/Buster. Works flawlessy and fast enough for backuping up a dozen of CT's and many data. I'm very happy with this downscaled setup :)

this is for our work,currently all our CT's are ceph based (3 replication), it should be solid enough, but a bug in the ceph core can cause a issue that is beyond my capabilities to fix. so i am looking for something to feel safe ( another backup off site will be added later)

what are the best practice with PBS? hardware or software raid?

We usually got for enterprise refurbished hardware (dell\supermicro 1-5 years) and used (but relatively new sas ssds 1-2 years old))
I guess our top budget for this is 1500$ (including storage)

We dont need high (around 5-10TB redundant , with some scale options in the future)
The question if we should go for ssd or hdd, and what raid controller (software or hardware )
