Does Amahi support LVM?


You can use LVM in your Amahi server. In fact some of our users like it!

Note that using two or three more drives will double or triple your chances of having a file system catastrophe due to a hardware failure. This is why LVM is often combined with RAID

LVM (Logical Volume Manager) is convenient for keeping multiple drives, very common nowadays, viewed as a single drive. However, unless you are familiar with LVM, we tend to nor recommend it due to the risk that one drive's failure makes it difficult to recover the data from the other.

We recommend this article on managing disk with LVM for a quick overview, if you want to learn more about it.
