>>82032702>you don't manually partition RAID
You still partition RAID, especially hardware RAID. The disks still need to be setup, just because they're redundant doesn't mean they suddenly defy how operating systems work.
If you're using LLVM for software RAID then you don't outright partition but you use the logical volumes, which mimic partitioning within the LVM.>let the VM handle it
Bare metal moment. Even with VMs though you'll still be dealing with VMDK which is effectively abstracted partitions; you'll have multiple VMDKs for that isolation instead of multiple partitions.>muh configuration
Have fun encountering your first bug when working with other people. I'd rather put var on a partition than trust that nobody will ever make a mistake in setting up logging or verifying user uploads.>malware
Yet another thing that partitioning isn't intended to protect you from. Malware can't be stopped with any partition scheme and can even harm unmounted partitions.
