I have a question regarding disk preparation.

I have 4 nodes, each has 24 SSD, i would like to know whats the best practice to setup the disks.

The pool will be used as a vmware datastore.

im planning on using each disk as a brick without lvm, pool will be distributed replicas with sharding enabled, do you have any comments on this setup ? because i dont know if i should use all disks as one big disk with RAID and disable sharding, or use each disk as a brick with sharding enabled.

also, Redhat website stated that i have to use LVM, but i couldn't get an answer on why i should use LVM or why i should't.

"You should not create Red Hat Storage volume bricks using raw disks. Bricks must be created on thin-provisioned Logical Volumes (LVs)"


Thank you.
