KVM

I normally create an VM with enough storage for the OS running in the VM, and then add additional storage for it to use. The added storage can be a whole hard drive, or just a 'virtual disk' which is a file on a drive somewhere. 

 

There's lots of ways to do it, and the best way to do it should be determined by you through trial and error.  

 

I like using virtual disk files because they're a little bit easier to copy to other places to back them up.

Hi.  I am starting to look at KVM.  I want to set up a VM for a ownCloud server.  I get that I create a disk image for the VM but cant work out if I am supposed to put all the (owncloude) date in the VM image or create a separate (i.e. /owncloud) filesystem on the host machine and share it with the VM.

 

I would rather not put the owncloud data in the VM as if I do I dont think I can just backup the VM without backing up the data also.  

 

On a side not I haven't used Ubuntu for a while and went to the forum to ask this question but was unable to post, what gives?

 

Ben
