Virtual Storage Portal

What Does Virtual Storage Portal Mean?

A virtual storage portal (VSP) is a Web application that enables end users and organizations to edit, view and manage the storage rented from a cloud storage provider, and allows users to manage and forecast their storage resources, considering the storage infrastructure in use.


VSP is also a branded application of Storage Networks Inc. that provides similar services.

Techopedia Explains Virtual Storage Portal

A virtual storage portal is primarily a form of Web-based storage control panel that is accessed through a Web browser interface and is offered by the respective cloud or virtual storage vendor. VSP allows its customers to manage the addition and subtraction of storage space, predict future storage needs based on usage trends, grant access to administrators and monitor the performance of the storage infrastructure.

Although the provisioned storage may be from a public, private, community or hybrid cloud storage provider, the primary function of VSP remains the same.
