How to use Data Disk

StarryDNS offers KVM VPS with disk structure as follows:

/dev/vda – os disk
— /dev/vda1 – /boot
— /dev/vda2 – LVM (/ included)
/dev/vdb – data disk, no partition by default
/dev/vdc – initialization file, no need to be changed

There is no partition in /dev/vdb by default, so clients should manage it after getting a new fresh vps.

Here are some usual solutions.


== Only For Linux ==


1. Create New Partition and Mount it to /home (Reinstallation will not ruin the data)
2. Merge Data Disk and OS Disk (Reinstallation will ruin the data)
3. Use Data Disk as SWAP
4. Complex solution, you need to investigate it by yourself :)

== Only For Windows ==


1. Create Partition and Mount.
