The ability to provide multi-tenant cloud services at the infrastructure, platform, or software level is often underpinned by the ability to provide some form of virtualization to create economic scale. However, use of these technologies brings additional security concerns.
While there are several forms of virtualization, by far the most common is the virtualized operating system. If Virtual Machine (VM) technology is being used in the infrastructure of the cloud services, then it is imperative to consider compartmentalization and hardening of those VM systems.
Multi-tenant cloud services infrastructure requires having rapid elasticity, on demand availability of services to end consumers all through the use of shared pooling of resources. With such an approach the requirement for providing comprehensive security services per tenant becomes of absolute importance. Data commingling, interference and leakage are all considered to be deterrents for enterprises to adopt to cloud computing.
