[PVE-User] Custom storage in ProxMox 5

Ceph has rather larger overheads, much bigger PITA to admin, does not perform as well on whitebox hardware – in fact the Ceph crowd std reply to issues is to spend big on enterprise hardware and is far less flexible.

Can Ceph run multiple replication and ec levels for different files on the same volume? Can you change goal settings on the fly? Near instantaneous spanshots and restores at any level of the filesystem you choose? Run on commodity hardware with trivial adding of disks as required?



ZFS is not a distributed filesystem, so don’t know why you bring it up. Though I am using ZFS as the underlying filesystem.

Don't waste your time with lizardfs.

Proxmox 5+ has proper Ceph and ZFS support.

Ceph does everything and more, and ZFS is about the de-facto container
storage medium.
