Hi,

I am looking for the best suitable SSD drives for a Proxmox VE Ceph cluster in our test-lab. The current plan is to use 4 x 512 GB SSD per server for OSD. (12 * 512 GB drives, total net capacity of 2 TB , with a replication of 3.)

Based on features (power loss protection)  and price, the Crucial MX100 looks like a good candidate for this setup.

I will connect the SSDs on LSI SAS 9207-8i controllers, using servers and network like described here:

Any other recommendations for SSDs or hints to get the best out for this?

Thanks,

Martin
