Difference between thin provisioning and thick provisioning

Thin Provisioning and Thick Provisioning are the terms used with storage. Hyper-V Clouds or Vmware clouds use Clustering Technology where assigning Storage is Mandatory.

Now Consider If We assign 1TB Storage Space to a Particular Cluster or a Server , Thin Provisioning will not assign the Entire 1TB Space to the cluster but will assign space on the fly or Dynamically as required by the user which in turn saves the storage space for future use.

Whereas in thick provisioning the Entire 1TB will be assigned to the Server or the cluster
