I have a server with below configuration
Intel Xeon E3 - 1230 2 * (Seagate 1 TeraByte) = total two terabyte 16 GB Ram
My Requirement : I need to run XenServer on this box and run 4 Ubuntu Virtual Machines and 1 windows VM.
I need to set about 750GB space for common share across all Virtual Machines. All the VMS need to read and write data from the common space. I intend to use NFS or Samba.
My Questions :
What is better NFS or Samba ?
One approach : I create a new Ubuntu VM and allocate about 750GB to it. I run NFS server on this VM and all other VMs just mount and use the space.
Second Approach : I can allocate the space to XenServer itself and run the NFS server on it.
Please suggest if there is any better solution than above two Or the best solution among the above two.
