2 Executive summary As part of HP s Converged Cloud, HP CloudSystem enables enterprise and service providers to build and manage services across private, public and hybrid cloud environments on a simplified, integrated architecture. Based on proven, market leading HP Cloud Service Automation and Converged Infrastructure, HP CloudSystem is tailored for the requirements of enterprises and service providers at various stages of cloud maturity with three offerings: Entry configuration for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) with HP CloudSystem Matrix that lets customers provision infrastructure and applications in minutes. Full-scale deployment of private and hybrid cloud environments with HP CloudSystem Enterprise, which lets customers unify management across private, public and hybrid clouds and adds advanced infrastructure-toapplication lifecycle management. Advanced capabilities for service providers with HP CloudSystem Service Provider, facilitating deployment of public and hosted private clouds that deliver complete service aggregation and management. HP CloudSystem Enterprise helps customers deploy the full service models delivered directly to the line of business teams that are highly flexible, scalable and customizable. This offering provides an integrated catalog of easy-to-order services and applications, while automating service provisioning by matching workloads to server, storage and networking resources. Line-of-business users can manage the full lifecycle from discovery to provisioning, patching to configuration management, and script execution to compliance assurance. While HP CloudSystem Enterprise is optimized to work in an HP environment, customers can extend and protect their investment by integrating legacy infrastructure and software into CloudSystem s hybrid cloud environment. For further information about HP CloudSystem Enterprise, refer to the solution brief. This document describes multi-tenancy features in HP CloudSystem Enterprise. It covers the integration between the different components of CloudSystem Enterprise to create a multi-tenancy solution. A sample reference implementation is used to describe and illustrate the integration. Target audience: The intended audiences of this white paper are system integrators, installers, and administrators of CloudSystem Enterprise. One should be familiar with CloudSystem Enterprise, HP Matrix Operating Environment (Matrix OE), HP Matrix OE Infrastructure Orchestration (HPIO), and Cloud Service Automation (CSA). Multi-tenancy overview Multi-tenancy in cloud computing allows for the dynamic and secure allocation of computing resources among organizations. Idle or under-utilized resources are no longer tied to a particular organization but instead can be available for other organizations to use. In an environment without multi-tenancy, each organization s resources are isolated in their respective silos. Each organization has their own set of dedicated servers, storage, and network resources. Figure 1 shows how multi-tenancy breaks down computing barriers and makes all resources available to all organizations. Organizations often require network separation at some level. It is also possible to have all networks available to all organizations using Matrix OE multi-tenancy. In the sample diagram below, each organization has one network connection (solid line) but each could also be connected to other networks (dashed line). 2

4 Multi-tenancy in CloudSystem Enterprise CloudSystem Enterprise uses a variety of resources to enable a full multi-tenancy solution. For hardware, these include HP 3PAR disk arrays for storage and HP BladeSystem c-class server blades with HP Virtual Connect for the networking. For software, these include the Matrix Operating Environment and HP Cloud Service Automation. Let s take a closer look at each component shown in Figure 2 and their multi-tenancy capabilities. Figure 2: CloudSystem Enterprise multi-tenancy hardware and software components stack HP 3PAR Storage Multi-tenancy at the storage level can be implemented by using HP 3PAR Storage. HP 3PAR Virtual Domains Software delivers up to 1,024 Virtual Private Arrays with secure isolation of array management access to separate disk pools and hosts. By providing secure, administrative segregation of users and hosts within a shared storage infrastructure, HP 3PAR Virtual Domains allow individual user organization groups and applications to achieve multi-tenancy security as well as lower TCO management cost with greater flexibility. This functionality is highly leveraged by hosting providers to deliver virtual private array services and enterprise IT organizations to deliver self-service storage that is both secure and capable of high quality-of-service levels. Each virtual domain shown in Figure 3 represents an organization. Multiple organizations can be grouped in a virtual domain set. 4
5 Figure 3: Virtual domain and virtual domain sets HP BladeSystem c-class HP BladeSystem server blades reduce data center sprawl, simplify management, and can be fully integrated with HP 3PAR storage through HP Virtual Connect. HP BladeSystem is the cornerstone of HP s Converged Infrastructure initiative and continues to lead the market in technology and innovation. In a multi-tenant configuration, blade servers can be dynamically allocated from one organization to the next. Under-utilized and unused servers can be allocated to other organizations that require more resources. HP Virtual Connect HP Virtual Connect provides the world s first wire-once interconnect solution for virtualized and cloud-ready environments. LAN or SAN connections are virtualized at the server edge for simplicity, flexibility, and mobility. A variety of Virtual Connect modules are available to enable this important piece of the multi-tenancy technology. Virtual Connect reduces configuration complexity, provides fast provisioning, lowers infrastructure cost, and reduces latency. In a traditional LAN or SAN, the connection options could become large, complex, and difficult to manage. Changes in the server environment can place administrative burdens on LAN and SAN administrators. HP Virtual Connect reduces management complexity by introducing an abstraction layer between servers and external networks. The abstraction layer pools and shares LAN and SAN connections for servers. A server administrator uses Virtual Connect management software to create an I/O connection profile for each server. More than one connection profile can exist for a server but only one can be active on a server at a time. Any changes in the server environment are transparent to the LAN or SAN environments. 5
6 HP Matrix Operating Environment HP Matrix Operating Environment (Matrix OE) is the common platform that manages and orchestrates converged infrastructure configurations and operations. Matrix OE is the glue that ties together all the components of a multitenancy configuration. Matrix OE can dynamically allocate servers, service offering templates, storage, and network connections to different organizations. Matrix OE first introduced multi-tenancy features with version 7.0, which allows the dynamic and secure allocation of data center resources that are managed by Matrix OE among different user groups or organizations. Matrix OE can dynamically allocate specific servers, templates and network connections to an organization. This set of resources is then dedicated to the assigned organization and other organizations cannot access it. Figure 4 shows a sample implementation of three organizations (Finance, Marketing, and Sales) sharing resources and how each organization s resources remain isolated. For example, the Finance organization, color-coded in blue, has a set of six compute servers, four HPIO templates, and two networks allocated to it. A different set of resources is allocated for the Marketing organization and a different set for the Sales organization. The storage resources are defined on the type of template used. Storage resources are defined as a storage pool entry (SPE) in Matrix OE. SPEs specific to an organization can be given a tag name that can be specified on a template. Figure 4: Matrix OE multi-tenancy overview 6
7 Organizational resources can be configured with finer granularity. Users can have different levels of security and access. Certain users are granted access to specific applications that are configured for a particular server. An organization s administrative user can create server pools and grant access to specific users in the organization to implement this level of security. Servers can only be allocated to a single pool at a time. To illustrate, Figure 4 earlier shows the six servers allocated to the Finance organization. These servers can be grouped into different server pools. Figure 5 shows four servers configured in a server pool while the other two servers are in a different server pool. Server access is restricted to specific organization users per server pool. For example, finance1 user has access only to Server Pool 1, finance 2 user to both server pools, and finance user 3 only to Server Pool 2. Figure 5: Resource allocation granularity 7
8 HP Cloud Service Automation HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) is the industry s most comprehensive, unified solution for brokering and managing application and infrastructure services in private and hybrid cloud environments. HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) sits on top of Matrix OE. CSA has its own implementation of multi-tenancy, which is independent of Matrix OE. In CSA, the isolation of resources is limited to the service offerings assigned in the organization s catalog. Whereas Matrix OE resources for multi-tenancy are isolated at the hardware level and to templates that use the hardware. CSA service offerings are similar to HPIO templates in Matrix OE. A template could be assigned to all organizations, or it can be isolated to just one or a few. Similarly, a CSA service offering could be assigned to a global catalog to make it visible to all organizations, or it can be isolated to a specific organization or sets of organizations. In Figure 6 below, two service offerings are visible to each organization s catalog. The Finance organization catalog has LAMP and Amazon web services. The Marketing organization catalog has LAMP and Simple Compute Linux. The Sales organization catalog has Simple Compute Windows and Amazon web services. The Global catalog has the HP SiteScope service offering assigned to it. Any service offering in the Global catalog are available to the Finance, Marketing, and Sales organizations. Figure 6: CSA Multi-Tenancy overview 8
9 How to implement multi-tenancy in HP CloudSystem Enterprise Multi-tenancy for HP CloudSystem Enterprise integrates the Matrix OE multi-tenancy implementation with CSA. Multitenancy is first configured in Matrix OE. After the organizations are created and set up in Matrix OE, the same organizations are created in CSA. The names of the organizations defined in CSA must match those in Matrix OE, such as Finance, Marketing, or Sales. Service offerings (SO) can be configured for each organization using various resource offerings (RO) with the sample Matrix OE multi-tenancy blueprint or service design. The service offerings are created based on the organization restrictions that are defined in Matrix OE, for example some templates defined in Matrix OE may only apply to a specific organization. The service offerings configured in CSA can be deployed to the organization s Consumer Service Portal. Service offerings deployed from each Customer Service Portal will interact with its organization counterpart in Matrix OE. Matrix OE will in turn process the request based on the type of HPIO template that is defined in the service offerings and allocate the appropriate resources configured for the organization. Figure 7 shows the integration between CSA and Matrix OE. Figure 7: CSA and Matrix OE integration 9
10 Reference implementation Overview This document describes the hardware and software used to demonstrate HP CloudSystem Enterprise multi-tenancy. The following are the steps required to complete the reference implementation: Set up the organization groups in Active Directory Configure the multi-tenancy organizations in Matrix OE Configure the multi-tenancy organizations in CSA Deploy the organization service offerings from the Customer Service Portal Test configuration The configuration used to test the multi-tenancy integration between CSA 3.0 and Matrix OE 7.1 included a minimum of one BladeSystem c7000 enclosure populated with a mix of HP ProLiant BL460c G7 and Gen8 server blades. The c7000 enclosure was attached to the HP 3PAR F-Series storage in a boot-from-san configuration. The software components tested in this reference implementation are outlined in Table 1.

Active Directory is a database system that provides authentication and access policies in a Windows environment. LDAP protocol is one of the protocols used to communicate to AD. In this reference implementation, three organizations configured in Active Directory are named Finance, Marketing and Sales. Figure 9 shows a Groups folder that contains the three organizations. An optional fourth group named CSA Admins is also created in the same folder. This group contains select users other than the default admin user that will have administrative access to configure CSA. Figure 9: Active Directory configuration of the organizations 11
12 For each group, test administrator and standard users are configured as shown in Table 2. Table 2: Organization test users Finance Marketing Sales finance-admin finance1 finance2 finance3 marketing-admin marketing1 marketing2 marketing3 sales-admin sales1 sales2 sales3 Matrix OE organizations When the organizations have been configured in Active Directory, you can set up and configure the organizations in Matrix OE.
