    For a FOSS(ish) HCI solution using Proxmox in a three node HA cluster, I see that shared storage a la ceph is not desirable considering vsan would offer better performance at that node count. Why not do away with the concept of "sharing" and consider a "share nothing" approach?

    I've only just started using Proxmox, so I have no looked into this, but maybe a DRBD over iscsi solution? (active/active or active/passive). I think with the commercial version you get DRBD over rdma.
