I suggest you read up on Netapp here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NetApp_filer

Basically netapp calls their storage devices filers, so you can look at virtual containers as virtual filers (storage devices) ... In very simple terms
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
vFilers are ONTAP ( NetApp's proprietary operating system ) virtual containers that create separate virtual filer instances on a (physical) controller

More info can be found here.
