Join instructor Scott Simpson, as he shows how to manage and optimize file storage on Ubuntu Linux. First, learn how to create, modify, and mount partitions and filesystems, and manage swap space. Scott then combines these basics into more sophisticated solutions using volume management, and shows how to secure Linux storage and configure disk quotas and backup policies.
- Creating and modifying partitions
- Creating, modifying, and mounting filesystems
- Mounting encrypted partitions
- Creating redundant storage with RAID
- Working with physical volumes, volume groups, and logical volumes
- Securing filesystems with ACLs
- Backing up data
Skill Level Intermediate
- [Scott] Storage is a critical component of systems. Documents, photos, music, databases, logs and code all need to live somewhere. And depending on how large or how important this data is, you have different approaches and strategies for configuring and managing your storage. In this course we'll take a look at the basics of storage. Devices, partitions, volumes and file systems. We'll see how to manage swap space for your systems, and how to make changes to partitions. And then we'll dig deeper into combining the basics into more complex systems with volume management.
And then we'll take a look at mounting file systems manually and automatically. At the end of the course, we'll look at quarters and backup policies. Let's go.
