#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? #linuxhelp
@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.
