Avere systems Inc. added a global namespace capability, to make easier to manage data across heterogeneous filers. The global namespace is part of the 2.0 release of the Avere Operating System. Ron Bianchini, CEO of Avere, confirmed that the lack of global namespace made it more complicated between users and filers due to the fact that administrators had to change mount points when files moved across filers. With global namespace being added, it gives a single namespace view across all the filers to unify NAS systems from one or more multiple vendors. For more information click on this link.
