EVMS brings a new model of volume management to Linux®. EVMS integrates all aspects of volume management, such as disk partitioning, Linux logical volume manager (LVM) and multi-disk (MD) management, OS2 and AIX volume managers, and file system operations into a single cohesive package. With EVMS, various volume management technologies are accessible through one interface, and new technologies can be added as plug-ins as they are developed.
