virtual fabric

A storage area network (SAN) technology in which a group of switches and other objects constitute a hardware-based, isolated environment within a physical fabric. Virtual fabrics create multiple, isolated SAN environments within a physical SAN fabric in order to enable more efficient use of the SAN, especially in terms of availability and scalability. Also called virtual SAN or VSAN.
