Why not ask whoever told you these terms? If you provide model numbers, that will clear up the quesiton about what you mean.

I agree with Mr. Sample. These seem to be terms your shop had adopted, but I don't think they are sort of industry standard. I have guesses as to their meaning, as I suspect Mr. Sample does, but this is not something where our guesses would add anything useful, or reliable, to this discussion.

Hello,

Places/people to ask (if you learned this term from a co-worker) might start with the storage menagement people or the computer operations people.
Hope this helps,
