A single namespace is one
presentation of file
system data. This can
refer to the directory
for an individual file system, or it can encompass several systems that are clustered or virtualized.
A single namespace is beneficial because it simplifies management to one interface. When working with multiple
physical file systems, a single namespace presents one interface as if all the data were in the
same location. The alternative would be to manage each individual system separately.
