September 7, 2016 - General Meeting

Topic: System Storage Manager

Presenter: Terry Bowling

Terry Bowling will provide an overview and quickstart presentation on System Storage Manager (SSM).

SSM provides easy to use command line interface to manage your storage using various technologies like lvm, btrfs, encrypted volumes and more.

In more sophisticated enterprise storage environments, management with Device Mapper (dm), Logical Volume Manager (LVM), or Multiple Devices (md) is becoming increasingly more difficult. With file systems added to the mix, the number of tools needed to configure and manage storage has grown so large that it is simply not user friendly. With so many options for a system administrator to consider, the opportunity for errors and problems is large.

SSM reduces this complexity by providing a single, comprehensive tool and interface.
