ALSO CALLED: Virtualization, Storage-based Virtualization, Host-based Virtualization, SV, NAS Virtualization, SAN Virtualization, Block Virtualization, Storage Subsystem Virtualization, File Virtualization, Disk Virtualization, Network-based Virtualization, Storage Device Virtualization
DEFINITION: File virtualization is the creation of an abstraction layer between file servers and the clients that access those file servers. Once deployed, the file virtualization layer manages files and file systems across servers, allowing administrators to present clients with one logical file mount for all servers. The file servers continue to host file data and metadata. While this arrangement may seem to  …

STORAGE VIRTUALIZATION DEFINITION (continued): …  add IT overhead unnecessarily, file virtualization provides several key advantages, including a global namespace to index files on network file servers. In addition, this virtual file storage consolidation allows excess storage capacity to be shared between file servers. Data migrations can be conducted between file servers transparently to end users and applications, which is ideal in a tiered storage infrastructure. In short, file virtualization allows companies to access isolated ("stranded") storage capacity on network file servers and perform seamless file migrations among them. …
