Example—Volume That Consists of Two Slices

Figure 3–2 shows a volume that contains two slices, one slice from Disk A and one slice from Disk B. An application or UFS treats the volume as if it were one physical disk. Adding more slices to the volume increases its storage capacity.

are presented by Solaris Volume Manager as a single logical volume.
