Pooled storage file system's main aim is to eliminate the concept of fixed size volumes.
Pools are collection of partitions which can be dynamically expand and contract whenever the user needs (even when the file system is mounted)
Files which are larger than the available free space in the volume, cannot fit in the volume. To increase the volume size, you have to add more partitions to the volumes, which involves formatting the entire volume. But in PFS, just type
pfs add pool_name /dev/partition
and TADA!!!! ur pool size increases immediately!
