Re: [linux-lvm] Allocation Policy for Cloud Computing needed

Hi James,

thank you for your idea, but this is exactly what I don't want. I want
to have the LV completely on one PD if possible (but not all on the
first). Only if the customer requests more than the capacity of a single
hard drive I would provide striping, but only on that volume.

If all customers can access all hard drives at the same time this
results into very slow random IO. I've seen that on SW RAID-10. All the
rw-heads need to be repositioned over and over again.
