I have mainly on my server around 200 Gb data and expanding. I would like to use for now on a virtual server (my new server will have VT, 16Gb ram, 2x1To raid disk)
I wonder what is safer, to use a for example 500Gb virtual disk for data or use a dedicated 500Gb partition accessed through virtual network or shared folder.
I wonder this because of the updates (and then distro upgrade) that could brake the shares. I use openSUSE, 12.3 for now and then 13.1 when available
