I am working for a small company that is switching from Netware to Suse. I am working on a test server and trying to setup partitions for the server that will hold data for AutoCAD files / Word Files and Pictures. What size partitions should be made for the Root / Swap etc and what format? We have bought 2 Dell R620 Servers with 32GB Ram and a Dell PowerVault MD3200i. The servers have VMware on them.

Also what format should be used for the Data partitions? I read that BTRFS format is the new generation but is everyone using yet?

I am new to Linux so I am trying to balance information from books and the Internet but I can't seem to figure it out.

Any advice would be truly appreciated.

Thanks,
