The Core is the central VM on which the AniNIX's primary services are built. It is both a production platform and software repository location.
The Core is so named because all the rest of the AniNIX is built around it.
The AniNIX uses the following storage stack, from user-accessed files to bits on disk. Bootability is from an unencrypted [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/EXT4 EXT4 boot sector] and MBR [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB GRUB] bootloader.
The output of "lsblk -o NAME,KNAME,SIZE,FSTYPE,TYPE,MOUNTPOINT,LABEL,PARTLABEL" gives the following layout. Additional shares mounted to accomodate users are not shown.
