Re: Raid or LVM

I have been working on a project and have come to wall. I need something
that will allow more than 256mg in a file size and still allow me to add

the documents say and raid seems to be a one shot option (set up disk(s)
create file system, done). Does any one have a suggestion for this

LVM2 is a software raid manager. What you are looking for is a hardware raid with a volume manager that understands adding/removing disks, something like Veritas Volume manager. These solutions are not cheap.
