Rafay at Multi-TenancyCon: Meeting the Community & Embracing the Future of Multi-Tenancy

At Rafay, we’re all about pushing the boundaries of cloud-native technology and helping organizations thrive in a complex, ever-evolving landscape. That’s why we’re thrilled to be a part of the very first MultiTenancyCon, an event that promises to be a game-changer for anyone navigating the world of multitenancy.

Let’s speak MultiTenancy

Using a single cluster with appropriate namespaces for different applications allows efficient resource sharing, streamlined management, and better scalability. This concept, called multi-tenancy, Sharing clusters saves costs and simplifies administration. However, sharing clusters also presents challenges such as security, fairness, and managing noisy neighbors.

A common form of multi-tenancy is to share a cluster between multiple teams within an organization, each of whom may operate one or more workloads. These workloads frequently need to communicate with each other and with other workloads located on the same or different clusters.

Clusters can be shared in many ways. In some cases, different applications may run in the same cluster. In other cases, multiple instances of the same application may run in the same cluster, one for each end user. All these types of sharing are frequently described using the umbrella term multi-tenancy.
