I am thinking of creating a virtual machine for one of my clients using Hyper-V. It will be a terminal server environment where they will be using a cetralised database and accessing emails and docs. Their documents folder is only around 50GB and they have been getting away with 240GB up until now but I will increase a little when I build it. My question: Is there a need to partition the OS from the data drive.. will this provide any increase in performance or reliability?
FYI We will be running SSD drives with 32GB RAM, 8 vCPU cores which I think is ample.
