File system name space is one of many new features of NFSv4.

NFSv4 provides a different model file system name-space model than did previous versions. NFSv4 servers, rather than exporting multiple file systems, provide/export only a single hierarchical file system tree ("pseudo file system"), formed from multiple actual file systems, and potentially customized for each client. If a server has to share more than one logical file system tree, the single trees are integrated in a new virtual root directory.
