Sistina Software was an organization that focused on storage solutions architected around a Linux platform. They were acquired by RedHat in December, 2003. Their two primary offerings were GFS (Global File System) and LVM (Logical Volume Manager).
LVM has become a part of the Linux kernel. It is a subsystem which allows arbitrary physical storage to be recognized as a virtual disk device. The physical storage can be remote, or it can even consist of multiple physical devices, but LVM abstracts those distinctions away from the operating system user. LVM also provides services for backing up data.
