Logical Volume Manager.

It's known under HP-Sux, for example.

You put n disks into a volume group, then you create partitions on
that group, the LVM decides how to use which of these n disks, you
can resize the filesystems and move things from one physical disk
to another if you expect a failure and want to exchange disks.  You
can also add another disk to the group and expand the filesystems.
