Multitenancy Capabilities of NimbleOS

Gartner predicts that by 2020 more compute and storage power will have been sold by infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) cloud providers than will have been sold and deployed into enterprise data centers. The concept of multitenancy arises from the need of service providers to carve out pools of infrastructure for multiple customers, also called tenants.

  • Management efficiency and simplicity
  • Lower or no additional licensing costs for multitenancy features
  • Separate user experiences for service providers and tenants
  • Explicit support for multiple tenants
