The closest I would think is partitioning - data matching certain
criteria can be in one tablespace and other data in another tablespace.
This won't be just once this disk is full use another - you would say
something like table1's rows with id<2000000 on this disk and
id>=2000000 on another.
If your data is that large you may want to look into the benefit's it
can offer even if you do use lvm.
