Morro Data CloudNAS employs the concept of Global Namespace to manage the user’s file system globally. A global namespace is beneficial as it simplifies the management of a shared file system even when data is distributed globally.
A traditional NAS or a cluster of NAS constitutes an independent file system. Multiple NAS’s in separate locations will require the IT admin to manage multiple file systems (namespaces) separately. In a global namespace, all CloudNAS CacheDrives in separate locations present the same file system and can be managed as one.
Assuming the user has two sites, each with a CacheDrive. The user creates the simplest file system with only one share called ShareA in the Morro Cloud Manager (MCM).
In our global namespace, ShareA is mapped to
Users in both sites can read/write data to ShareA and the updated files will be synced to both CacheDrives in real time by the Morro Global File System.
