Volume that contain file system and its hold user datas
accessible protocols like FC, CIFS, HTTP, FTP, ISCSI

Two types of volume

Flexiable volume : 

                           A FlexVol volume is a volume that is loosely coupled to its containing aggregate. A FlexVol volume can share its containing aggregate with other FlexVol volumes. Thus, a single aggregate can be the shared source of all the storage used by all the FlexVol volumes contained by that aggregate.

Ttraditional volume : 

                    A traditional volume is a volume that is contained by a single, dedicated, aggregate. It is tightly coupled with its containing aggregate. No other volumes can get their storage from this containing aggregate.
