I have a server that has 32GB of RAM and 8TB of HDD with RAID 1 for 4TB of total HDD space.

I would like to split that with 2 TB being NFS and 2TB being Samba.

This is sort of a discussion oriented question.

I was wondering about running NFS and Samba under LXD or Docker containers. Would there be advantages to doing this (at least for learning)?
