hey guys, I have few more questions: 1. Can Harvester use two different types of storage, such as using SSD for the Harvester OS and HDD for data instances, or does it require using one type only (all SSD or all HDD)? 2. If we install more than one storage disk, does the system need to operate in RAID or can it be used in JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) mode without RAID?

Harvester supports the simultaneous use of many different types of disks. You can depend that your use case to determine to operate in RAID, u can refer below informations:https://docs.harvesterhci.io/v1.1/host/#multi-disk-management https://github.com/harvester/harvester/issues/3183

1. OS data and VM data can be stored in different disks (refer https://docs.harvesterhci.io/v1.1/install/iso-install for iso installation, refer https://docs.harvesterhci.io/v1.1/install/harvester-configuration#installdata_disk for pxe installation) 2. Different VM can use different disks. Different volumes in a VM can use different disks (refer to https://docs.harvesterhci.io/v1.1/host/#multi-disk-management)
