Addition of new Volume to my rackspace server.

I recently added a new 50 GB volume to my rackspace server. I previously had one volume and now have 2 volumes. I have a few questions around this addition 

  1. Will the data within the first volume get redistributed on the second volume?
  2.  Is it possible to create file systems larger than the limit of an individual volume? - lets say my MySQL database or session storage is individually about to hit 60 GB then will things break here.
  3. Do i need to use a RAID installation in such a case or is it preinstalled?
  4. Also RAID 0 is not fault tolerant so in order to have a fault tolerant setup i will be needing 6 volumes using RAID10. How do we set these up?

Looking forward to some amazing answers!
