RE: [linux-lvm] LVM and its alternatives

Title: RE: [linux-lvm] LVM and its alternatives


        Veritas has also ported their LVM to Linux (http://www.veritas.com/products/category/ProductDetail.jhtml?productId=volumemanagerwin&_requestid=32431), but I understand it's not open source or free. Along the same lines, Oracle is promoting what they call "Oracle File System" for Linux, which is a file system based on their RDBMS (not sure this will qualify as LVM though). Regards,

Daniel Barbar

Well, there is EVMS.  Though that's from IBM and I see your from HP,
so maybe you don't want know about it :)

Here's the link I have:


It looks really well done, and the HOWTO and FAQ are excellently
written (though they need a little better spell-checking :)

        It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.

         If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
