Dear!
I greatly appreciate your genuine and timely answers for my questions.
Now I got additional 2 hard disks; As I mentioned all are 300GB SAS hard drives.
According to your recommendation, some 3 or 4 RAID 5, 2 RAID 1 (For Proxmox), 1 for Hot spare,
What is "backup" file system, I'm not clear with that. And the other issue I can not get another server right now for  Cluster. Is  Cluster creation a must activity now?
Thank you in advance.
Best regards,

Getachew Mekonnen

Please don t do that, its not recommended!
Alexandre had already mad another suggestion..
Hardware-Raid or zfs
