Building a Secure Multi-tenant Cloud for SaaS Applications: Challenges and Lessons Learned

Creating a secure multi-tenant cloud requires proper tenant isolation and access control, operational efficiency through automation and self-service provisioning, and on-demand service creation with dynamic resource scaling across key network and security functions. Delivering all of these requires a move to optimized software abstractions and policy-based architectures as existing infrastructures lack the means to support dynamic applications and increasingly complex environments.

This panel discussion features a diverse group of panelists, who are experts in building and operating secure and multi-tenant cloud/SaaS environments using OpenStack. We will get each of their perspectives on 

(a) critical architectural requirements of emerging cloud applications 

(b) key technical/operational challenges within existing and/or legacy environments

(c) new architectural approaches to solve existing challenges and 

(d) unique capabilities of OpenStack to meet the requirements of their cloud environments


For those who are looking to build their own secure multi-tenant OpenStack-enabled cloud, this would be a great way to learn from the experts who have already deployed OpenStack virtual private clouds, on key mistakes and pitfalls to avoid and key decisions and best practices to consider.
