|Subject:||bug#21954: physical versus virtual disks|
|Date:||Wed, 18 Nov 2015 17:07:53 +0000|
This is an ongoing chat between a systems administrator and a applications developer:
It is in regards to what is an Amazon S3 'bucket' and how looks like a hard drive in the cloud.
As the admin I think that it existence does not give a S3 bucket every attribute of a real physical hard drive.
So if I ran the parted command or any other GPT aware utility against the dev files the point to a connected S3 bucket and tried to create a GUID partition table (GPT) and tried to preserve that configuration across the restarting of virtual instances that there would be no guarantees of it persistence.
Where in a virtual disk is the structures that store MBR, GPT, Inode structures and reserve areas for bad block data that is contained on a real physical hard drive?
