Hi all,

I've got a pair of identical Seagate disks on a server and I'm considering 
using a software RAID (RAID1). I was thinking of setting up LVM on a mdadm 
RAID, but I've read that LVM has support itself for mirroring.

So, what is the better approach? Using LVM mirroring capabilities or putting 
the LVM on a mdadm RAID 1?

Thank you in advance!
