volume management software

 

...aka "disk management software", "software RAID", "Logical Volume Manager (LVM)", or "disk partitioning software". 
 
Volume management software was originally developed to ride on top of JBOD subsystems.  Problems...since it is installed at the host there is no central administration.  Some vendor provide a centralized console but its not really the same thing. 
 
It essentially just abstracts the storage within the server.
