Recommended hardware

Take a look at our Proxmox VE Ceph Benchmark 2018/02 for possible hardware decisions. https://www.proxmox.com/en/downloads/item/proxmox-ve-ceph-benchmark

Further readings about Ceph

Ceph comes with plenty of documentation here. Even better, the dissertation from the creator of Ceph - Sage A. Weil - is also available. By reading this you can get a deep insight how it works.

using a disk that was part of a zfs pool

as of now

 ceph-disk zap /dev/sdX

is needed.

else it does not show up on pve > ceph > osd > Create OSD

restore lxc from zfs to ceph

if lxc is on zfs with compression the actual disk usage can be far greater then expected. see https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/lxc-restore-fail-to-ceph.32419/#post-161287

One way to know actual disk usage:

restore backup to a ext4 directory and run du -sh , then do restore manually specifying target disk size.

scsi setting

make sure that you use virtio-scsi controller (not LSI), see VM options. I remember some panic when using LSI recently but I did not debug it further as modern OS should use virtio-scsi anyways. https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/restarted-a-node-some-kvms-on-other-nodes-panic.32806
