Introduction to LVM

LVM (Logical Volume Management) offers a much more flexible way of managing your storage devices. Not only does it allow you to resize your volumes while the system is still up, it also frees you from having to decide exactly how many or how big volumes need to be at the time of installation.

For a detailed tour and introduction to LVM please consult the LVM Fun page.
