What about the possibility of data corruption in PV's?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 121.1.46.54] on August 22, 2007 03:03 AM
Like anything with moving parts, hard disks eventually degrade and the result is usually catastrophic. What would happen if one of the PV's fail? The setup described by the author, spreading one logical partition across several physical partitions across several drives, reminds me of RAID0. If one disk fails in the array, your entire logical partition is screwed. I would like to see another article dealing with this possibility.
