Hi there

Distributed File System (DFS) allows administrators to group shared folders located on different servers and present them to users as a virtual tree of folders known as a namespace. A namespace provides numerous benefits, including increased availability of data, load sharing, and simplified data migration.

Why it is useful;

Access from multiple clients
-same user on different machines can access the same files
Makes sharing easy
-Different users on different machines can read/write to the same files
Simplifies administration
-Only one shared server to maintain and backup
