[PVE-User] How is the default Proxmox partition layout? I am confused by a 16MB partition now.

Yes, you have a not used disk. If you want to add it to Proxmox VM 
storage, you should (first explore commands with -h flag!!!):
1. Add the PV to pve volumegroup (something like 'vgextend pve /dev/sdb')
2. Change size of LV for data in PVE, i.e. 'lvextend -L +915G 
3. Resize filesystem, i.e. 'resize2fs /dev/pve/data/'

You can do all commands without unmounting the filesystem if you have 
used Proxmox defaults (ext3/ext4 filesystem)

I don't know what are you using the server for, but remember that you 
don't have data redundancy (raid1).
