Get started with multitenancy on OpenShift

This learning path is designed for anyone interested in quickly setting up a multitenant environment with Red Hat OpenShift. This learning path consists of introductory article explaining what multitenancy is, its benefits, and various aspects you need to know about a multitenant environment. The learning path also includes detailed, step-by-step tutorials for the different aspects of multitenancy listed below:

  • Role-based access control to OpenShift projects
  • Isolating network for tenants
  • Isolating resources for tenants

Let’s look more closely at what each piece contains.
