Steven Pratt of IBM writes:

As part of its ongoing commitment to Enterprise-level volume management on Linux, IBM is announcing that it will contribute portions of the AIX LVM to the Open Source Community. IBM will be releasing this code as part of the Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) project. This announcement means that EVMS will now have support for 3 major volume management formats (Linux LVM, OS/2 and AIX) expanding on the flexibility provided by its pluggable architecture. In conjunction with the Linux JFS (http://oss.software.ibm.com/jfs) project, this enablement will make it possible to move disk drives between Linux and AIX systems and allow all data to be exchanged.
