we want to take the step to a distributed storage solution with CEPH.

However, after reviewing the documentation, it is not really clear to us 
whether we can use a Proxmox CEPH cluster only as storage (without 

We want to have the virtual machines running on independent nodes.

Is this possible?

If so, should the nodes for creating virtual machines and the Proxmox 
CEPH storage be in the same cluster?

Or is it possible for a non-clustered Proxmox node to add a Proxmox 
storage CEPH that is on the same network?

Thank you for your information!
