when adding a older machine to your cluster, keep in mind that the 
slowest node with determine the overall speed of the ceph cluster (since 
a vm's disk will be spread all over)


for RBD vm's you want low latency, so use things like
nvram > ssd > hdd  with osd latency significant difference here.

100Gb/25Gb > 40Gb/10Gb (1Gb is useless in this case imho)

as long as you have enough cores, higher ghz is better then lower ghz. 
due to lower latency

kind regards.
