Training Tuesday Edition - 7

This week’s blog presents a set of short videos on how to manage disk storage for your Oracle Linux 8 systems. Partitioning disks, creating file systems, and mounting file systems is an essential skill needed to provide storage for users, applications, and data.

In these videos, you’ll learn:

  • How to divide, or partition, your storage devices into smaller segments.
  • The standard naming convention used to access disk partitions.
  • The extended, or Ext, file system types and how to create and attach, or mount, a file system to a file hierarchy.
  • The file systems table, or fstab file, and how to configure file systems to be automatically mounted at boot time.
  • How to use swap space to help free your system’s physical memory when it becomes exhausted.

Here’s the list of videos and the time it takes for you to complete each one:

Be sure to come back for our next edition, which will cover Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) Virtualization. New videos are added on an ongoing basis so check back often.
