StorageOS namespaces are an identical concept to Kubernetes namespaces. They are intended to allow a StorageOS cluster to be used by multiple teams across multiple projects.

It is not necessary to create StorageOS namespaces manually, as StorageOS maps Kubernetes namespaces on a one-to-one basis when PersistentVolumeClaims using the StorageOS StorageClass are created.

Access to Namespaces is controlled through user or group level policies.
