Solaris Volume Manager Roadmap—Availability

For Instructions
Maximize data availability
Use Solaris Volume Manager's mirroring feature to maintain multiple copies of your data. You can create a RAID-1 volume from unused slices in preparation for data, or you can mirror an existing file system, including root (/) and /usr.
Add data availability with minimum hardware cost
Increase data availability with a minimum of hardware by using Solaris Volume Manager's RAID-5 volumes.
Increase data availability for an existing RAID-1 or RAID-5 volume
Increase data availability for a RAID-1 or a RAID-5 volume, by creating a hot spare pool then associating it with the submirrors of a RAID-1 volume, or a RAID-5 volume.
