Re: [linux-lvm] Re: IBM to release LVM Technology to the Linux Community




Mark,

While I can not talk about IBM's high availability products (different
product group within the company), I can say that high availability was a
consideration in our design, and that it can be handled through plug-ins.

I'm really excited that IBM is considering releasing their LVM
technology -- JFS and the LVM were really the best features of AIX by
far.

Could you address the prospect of IBM's LVM incorporating "shared"
volume groups like the commercial high-availablity software (IBM's
HA/CMP or HP's Service Guard or Sun's HA offering).  That kind of
software would allow a disk group to transfer to another system if the
main host failed.

Would something like that be a "feature plug-in" in the framework which
was proposed in the white paper?

Regards,

Mark
