GEOM - See Chapter 19 of the FreeBSD handbook for additional information

There are actually two versions of vinum.
"Classic" vinum - which which can do all RAID levels, but not using
GEOM. It appeared in FreeBSD 5, and it is not considered stable.
GEOM Vinum - A rewrite of vinum using GEOM. It provides most of of
functionality of classic, but still seems to be horribly under
If you are doing RAID-1, take a look at GEOM Mirror, which is
considered stable enough to run in production. More information can
be found in Chapter 18.4 of the handbook
