After a bit of advice for a Linux (Ubuntu) partitioning newbie. Recently bought myself a server for home use, just as a playground for VM's, Docker, general devsecops stuff like kubernetes, Jenkins etc. Anyway server came with a 1TB HDD I also had lying around a 60GB SSD and another 1.5TB HDD. Currently I have 16GB RAM but eventually intend to use all slots and get it up to 64GB so I can run plenty of VM's if I so require. Anyway being a bit of newb to partitioning (always just gone with defaults in the past), currently I've just got the following setup 60GB SSD - Single ext4 physical parition mounted to '/' 1TB HDD - 128GB Swap space at start of device - Rest logical partition mounted to /home 1.5TB HDD - All mounted so /usr Just interested to see what others have configured.
