All services are offered to Tenants or Users. Every Tenant obtains his own Service Environment which is fully separated from other Tenants. In the framework of his Environment a Tenant at service start-up obtains predefined Projects and basic Users. A Tenant is free to create his own additional Projects and Users. In this sense – a Tenant is usually related to an organization, Users are physical persons within this organization and Projects are related to projects run by the organization. On the one hand, this model provides full security of Tenant data and application, while on the other, gives high flexibility when realizing needs.
Services can be managed interactively via the so called Cloud Dashboard (OpenStack Horizon) and the User Portal. Simultaneously services can be configured and managed via an extensive REST API mechanisms (OpenStack API, Finder API, billing API).
The rich API management together with modularity of the service offer on our platform, makes it a perfect set of building blocks for other organizations. These building blocks can be connected together to build many complicated processing and web service environments.
