#linux server question:
I've a storage volume attached to my VPS, which I intend to use as main "data" storage, do I need to partition it (it would be a single partition taking all the space) or it's fine to just `mkfs` and mount it?


@minkiu No you don't need partitions. This is actually how I format big single drives, or virtual drives. I just mkfs onto /dev/sdb (or whatever the drive name is) and then use that without the partition number.

Makes for much easier expansion of virtual disks in VMs.

@stemid Thanks! Good to know about the expansion part.
