SQL Server object disks on Windows Server can be expanded at any time with no issues, but Linux doesn’t quite work like that by default.
In a situation where you run out of space, you’re out of luck, unless you know some secrets about Linux. The mysterious Linux Logical Volume Manager must be used before you put anything on the disks to properly set up the disks so you can expand them in a pinch in the future.

Break out your pocket protectors and come learn with someone who was compiling Linux kernels while in elementary school!
