Single namespace

A single namespace is one presentation of file system data.

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.
