Implementing Enhanced Secure Multi-tenancy Solutions (IESMT)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

This highly focused 3-day course provides a detailed understanding of how to integrate NetApp MultiStore, Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS), Cisco Nexus 1000v switches, and VMware vSphere to create a secure multi-tenant computing environment based on the Enhanced Secure Multi-tenancy guidelines. NetApp MultiStore serves as the storage foundation for multi-tenancy, Cisco UCS serves as the server hardware platform for VMware vSphere, and Cisco Nexus 1000v functions as a virtual intelligent switch. These individual products combine to provide secure isolated multi-tenant computing environments with independent security models, assured quality of service for critical services and applications, highly available redundant architecture, and an administrative support model that defines access levels for tenant administrators.

The Enhanced Secure Multi-Tenancy platform introduces several new components to the virtualization layer including intrusion prevention, firewall and load balancing services in addition to characterization of application workloads within the secure multi-tenant environment.

Virtualized computing environments have grown over the last several years at a phenomenal rate. As IT budgets shrink many organizations are looking for more efficient ways of meeting the increasing need for additional applications and services while dealing with the availability of environmental, hardware and staffing resources. The challenge previously was how to implement a multi-tenant virtualized server computing environment that met security and regulatory compliance. The Secure Multi-Tenant environment provides: Secure isolated computing environments at all layers: network, server computing and storage, satisfying the requirements of many security and regulatory agencies.
