virtual storage area network. A Cisco technology that allows independent logical fabrics to be defined from a set of one or more physical switches. A given switch port is assigned to only one VSAN. Each VSAN is completely isolated from the other VSANs and functions as a separate and independent fabric with its own set of fabric services (for example, Name Services, zoning, routing, and so on).
A virtual SAN, which functions like a zone but uses a different layer of the Fibre Channel protocol to enforce which devices in the fabric can speak to other devices.
