I'am new in proxmox.

I'am building my home lab. I have 2xSSD 480GB Samsung + 2xHDD 2TB drives. I want to made 2T drives in RAID 1. (SSD probably also) I have PERC H730 raid controller.
What files system should i choose? ext4? ZFS? lvm? lvm-thin?
I want to have about 3-4 VMs, with system installed on SSD. Partitions with large files on HDD + backups of VMs on HDD.

Any suggestions?
