Why does Vertica 6 not support LVM?

The vertica 6.0 supported platforms document states: "Note that Vertica 6 does not support Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM)." Why is this?


  • Our concern with LVM is file corruption. For Vertica database data and catalog disks, we do not test it and have concerns with (and have seen) file corruption. There is a product feature request to support LVM but no target date.
