I am planning on creating a new LXD host (living on a Hetzer CX21 Cloud Server with 4G RAM and 40G HD) and am wondering how to do this most efficiently. Some question I’d like to be clearer about
- Would it be beneficial have a separate partition (on the same HD) for the storage pool rather then creating an image file?
- if so, I assume the filesystem of choice on that partition would btrfs, right (probably the lxd init command formats the device with the fs you choose)?
- is ubuntu 20.04 already recommended for an LXD host (apt package rather then the snap) or would you still go with 18.04 on a new host?
