Exercise 1 - Manage Disk Quotas

Assigning disk quota enables the system administrator to manage the disk-space based parameters such as a project, a user group, or individual users. In addition to restricting the usage of disk-space, quotas can be used to limit the number of inodes created. This, effectively, limits the number of files each entity can create.

In this exercise, you will understand how to configure and manage the disk quotas.
