Effective storage management is a constant challenge in any enterprise environment. The ability to react quickly to increasing storage needs without disrupting the current configuration is key. In this activity, we will set up Logical Volume Manager (LVM) storage utilities to address this challenge.

We will partition a disk for use with LVM, and then create Physical Volumes, Volume Groups, and Logical Volumes. We will also delete a Logical Volume, and extend a Volume Group to be able to provide additional space in a Logical Volume. Learning how to use the flexibility of LVM makes us more effective at storage management.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
