Increasing Disk space for applications on a SAN

During the process of inicialization of my SAN I choose a solution that allows me to have more performance, so I create a RAID10 volume that I attached to several LVMs. After some time, I verify that some applications needed more space but performance is not an objective. Knowing that I can't stop my system and I have available all the resources necessary, how can I increase the space of my disk for this applications?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well, if you are using RAID 10, then you can use your hard drives as hot swappable. How many drives do you currently have and what is the size of them? You may need to either consider getting more drives or going virtualization to save some space, especially since that is the way a lot of SANs are now going. Think about it and start reading up on virtualization.

Good luck
