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. …
