currently with firefly, you can expect around 3000-5000 iops by osd,

so any good ssd should be ok.

Recent discussion on ceph mailing list, said that they have remove a lot of lock and bottleneck is current master git. (with performance x5)

Check this discussion, they are a lot of config samples to get the most performance.

I'll build a full ssd cluster next year, don't have choose ssd model yet.
(maybe intel s3500 800GB or newer models with replication x2)

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?
