LVM support


Is LVM supported in a CentOS 6.4 droplet? We need on demand backups for which we plan to use LVM snaphots. I am considering a couple of options

  1. Convert the root partition to a LVM partition
  2. Reconfigure the free space into a new partition and use LVM for it.

Has anybody tried this?

regards, Dharshan

Snapshots are currently not very useful since it shuts down the server. Are there any plans for snapshots that dont shut down the server? <br> <br>Is there any other option for me to configure LVM inside the machine?

Hi Stefan, <br> <br>I am happy to use DO backup if it solves my needs. I need a point in time backup - can be scheduled or on demand. Can you share some details of the backup process? Is it based on snapshots and how long does it typically complete? <br> <br>
