Cloud Networking Challenges: Multi-Tenancy
Multi-tenancy enables cloud administrators to optimize utilization of their networking assets and provide cost effective solutions while achieving economies of scale. However, Multi-tenancy often presents unique challenges for the cloud network administrators. Each tenant's network needs to be isolated from other tenants and tenants often need to have their own private address space.
With nCloudX, it doesn't matter if your devices are physical or virtual, from Juniper or Cisco or running IOS or NXOS. All of these are treated as network resources and customers will be presented with a network service catalog. Once they order a service from this catalog, nCloudX will orchestrate the service, adhering to a secure multi-tenant architecture.
In my next blog, we will discuss the specific challenges with capacity optimization.
I look forward to seeing you at Cisco Live London 2013.
