I think many ceph admins are more concerned with having many drives
co-using the same DB drive, since if the DB drive fails, it also means all
OSDs are lost at the same time.
Optanes and decent NVMEs are probably capable of handling tons of HDDs, so
that the bottleneck ends up being somewhere else, but the failure scenarios
are a bit scary if the whole host is lost just by that one DB device acting

May the most significant bit of your life be positive.
