Namespace tenancy

A System Administrator can set up namespaces in the following tenant scenarios:

Enterprise single tenant
All users access buckets and objects in the same namespace. Buckets can be created for subtenants, to allow a subset of namespace users to access the same set of objects. For example, a subtenant might be a department within the organization.
Enterprise multitenant
Departments within an organization are assigned to different namespaces and department users are assigned to each namespace.
Cloud Service Provider single tenant
A single namespace is configured and the Service Provider provides access to the object store for users within the organization or outside the organization.
Cloud Service Provider multitenant
The Service Provider assigns namespaces to different companies and assigns an administrator for the namespace. The Namespace Administrator for the tenant can then add users and can monitor and meter the use of buckets and objects.
