How to Manage and Use LVM (Logical Volume Management) in Ubuntu


In our previous article we told you what LVM is and what you may want to use it for, and today we are going to walk you through some of the key management tools of LVM so you will be confident when setting up or expanding your installation.
As stated before, LVM is a abstraction layer between your operating system and physical hard drives.
