The Logical Disk Manager is an implementation of a logical volume manager for Microsoft Windows NT, developed by Microsoft and Veritas Software. It was introduced with the Windows 2000 operating system, and is supported in Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The MMC-based Disk Management snap-in (diskmgmt. msc) hosts the Logical Disk Manager.

Computer data storage
Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, refers to computer components and recording media that retain digital data. Data storage is a core function and fundamental component of computers. In contemporary usage, 'memory' usually refers to semiconductor storage read-write random-access memory, typically DRAM (Dynamic-RAM). Memory can refer to other forms of fast but temporary storage.

Computer multitasking
In computing, multitasking is a method where multiple tasks, also known as processes, are performed during the same period of time. While the preceding statement appears to be true to people using the computer, the computer can only be executing one machine instruction at any instant so in reality only one task can be running at any one time.

Sequence
In mathematics, a sequence is an ordered list of objects (or events). Like a set, it contains members (also called elements), and the number of ordered element (possibly infinite) is called the length of the sequence. Unlike a set, order matters, and exactly the same elements can appear multiple times at different positions in the sequence. A sequence is a discrete function. For example, (C, R, Y) is a sequence of letters that differs from (Y, C, R), as the ordering matters.

Convex function
In mathematics, a real-valued function defined on an interval is called convex (or convex downward or concave upward) if the graph of the function lies below the line segment joining any two points of the graph. Equivalently, a function is convex if its epigraph (the set of points on or above the graph of the function) is a convex set. More generally, this definition of convex functions makes sense for functions defined on a convex subset of any vector space.
