One advantage is it makes for "easier" partitioning and adding storage (add disk, make disk a PV, expand VG, expand LV's). One disadvantage is it adds an extra layer of complexity to things. LVM2 should be documented somewhere. Did you try searching for it? BTW, this thread had no obvious relation to Linux Security (at least you didn't give any) so I've moved it to Linux Newbie.
