I have a physical server that has 16x1.2TB 10K RPM HDDs and 256GB RAM in a RAID-10 configuration hosting application VMs, i.e. SQL, SharePoint and the likes on VMware platform for about 80 users.
My thinking is if I already have that type of hardware configuration underline, I don't need to create partitions or separate hard disks for the application VMs, such as keeping SQL databases on one drive and logs files on the other, etc. as in the old days, but want to be sure that my thinking is correct.
Could you please help confirm this and if my thinking is not right, could you please explain so I have better understand about this? Thanks.
