LVM is a Logical Volume Manager for the Linux kernel. With LVM you can abstract your storage space and have "virtual partitions" which are easier to modify.

In LVM, there are some key words you should keep in mind:

PV=Physical volume
VG=Voulume group
LV=Logical volume


With LVM you can more easily handle your partitions (logical volumes) than normal hard drive partitions. For example, you can:

-Use any number of disks as one big disk(VG)
-Have partitions(LV) stretched over several disks (they can be as big as all of your disk storage together)
-Resize/create/delete partitions(LV) and disks(VG) online! (yes online)
-Create small partitions(LV) and resize them "dynamically" as they get more filled
-And the best of all, create SNAPSHOTS :wink: (that is the exact picture of your partition at a given time ... its a long story)

Have a look at this Article, I hope it will help you understand what lvm is :)
