Microsoft System Center Essentials Partitioning for Virtualization

I'm preparing to install SCE 2010; system requirements tell me that for virtualization i need a minimum of 150g of free space.
 
Can the "free space" be anywhere, or does it have to be on the same box?
Boot partition?
D: drive?
iSCSI array attached to another server?

I am not planning on doing any virtualization right away, but when I do I want to make sure that I install SCE (and everything else for that matter) so I can get the virtualization part up and running and not have one of those “I should have installed it this way kind of days”

Any experience and insight would be great…

Thanks in advance

I don't think that SCE will need 150 GB of free space

the space required depends on the amount of clients managed, data collections history, WSUS Updates downloads,  were the packages are stored you like to deploy with SCE  etc.

SCE uses SQL and therefore all requirements for SQL.

The data storage can be attached by iSCSI that would give the best performance for SQL r/w in stat of using vhds to store.

most important is to assign enough memory
