Alongside the demand for a resilient and scalable storage infrastructure, organizations need to manage and protect data for different subscribers, departments, and business groups. This includes setting up different usage policies, access controls, protection mechanisms, and so on. For service providers that offer storage-as-a-service, having this abstraction and virtual separation of storage services across shared storage resources used by different end-customers is an operational necessity.
DataCore Swarm is a flexible and adaptable object storage platform that supports multi-tenant access and management. By allowing a single, centralized storage infrastructure to provision storage to different tenants, Swarm helps extract the value of data stored on-premises and in hosted private/hybrid cloud environments.
- Based on each tenant’s needs, multiple domains can be created within a Swarm cluster.
- Within each domain, buckets can be created for metered quota allocation and resource management.
- Swarm’s flexibility allows users to define security policies, access control lists (ACL), and capacity at the domain, bucket, and individual object-levels.
Using Swarm, organizations and service providers can reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO) by enabling centralized management of multi-tenant object storage services for different tenants (internal or external subscribers).
