LVM2 is a package for managing logical volumes from one or more hard drives.

LVM provides a great flexibility for the space occupied by each volume. In fact, each volume can be resized, deleted or added.

LVM has 3 layers :

  1. Physical volumes
  2. Volume groups
  3. Logical volumes

LVM also allows you to quickly create a snapshot of your LVM system.

To create your physical volumes, volume groups and your logical volumes, refer to the tutorial listed below.
