Conversation on Multi-Tenancy in VPNs, Part 1
VPN Haus recently spoke with Rainer Enders, CTO of NCP engineering, about multi-tenancy in VPNs and its advantages. Stay tuned for part two of this conversation where we dive into some of the drawbacks of multi-tenancy and what it all means for enterprise users.
Q: What are the primary differences between a multi-tenant VPN and a standard VPN? How does virtualization play into the mix?
Rainer Enders: Multi-tenancy in VPN typically refers to the presentation and management of customer-specific objects and information related to the customer’s VPN connections. On the access network side, the resources that are being accessed and used by the various tenants must be logically and securely separated. Virtualization techniques such as Hypervisors, VLANs, and VSANs, ease the burden of operation, maintenance and management in multi-tenant networks.
