Multi-tenancy enables multiple organizations or teams to share the same cluster. There are different proposed multi-tenancy models in Kubernetes for different use cases, from soft-tenancy models where tenants trust each other to hard-tenancy models with no trust among tenants.

In this session, Xiaoning and Qian will share their use case of multi-tenant Kubernetes, where they share clusters with public cloud users. There is no trust among these users and a strong isolation among tenants is a must. They will talk about the use case, challenges, work, and also experience and lessons they learned from building such a hard multi-tenant cluster. And they will conclude the talk with a demo.
