Any pointers would be really appreciated.
Oh, the webserver is for a k-12 school system and serves primarily web pages and a medium amount of database content with some streaming video (not a huge demand, but will possibly grow in the future)
Most of the directories are not going to take up that much space, so your 900gigs is going to be enormous.
I'd probably do something like allocate 5 to 10 gigs to a partition each for /usr, /var, /etc. Then throw the bulk of the space into a partition for /home (for your users). So if someone goes nuts and eats up your home directory space, it won't shut your server down because /var has no more room.
