I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I want to mount AWS EBS (or any other network drive) to one of the following:
/data /vol /some-other-folder
I know, that there standard directories, like:
/var /etc /mnt /media
As there are no standard directory name, where to mount a such external HDD, SAN, NAS... Are there any best practices? Or I should mount it under /mnt or /media dir?
Wikipedia says, that /media is for removable media, and /mnt is for Temporarily mounted filesystems. But I want to mount a permanent filesystem.
Another concern is, if I choose /data, then will I have some potential folder conflict in future? When /data can be included in Linux Filesystem Hierarchy...
