Multi-tenant Spaces are the main organizational construct in Multapplied SD-WAN. They allow aggregated links, Aggregators, users, and other resources to be placed into distinct groups. Multi-tenant Spaces can have their own IP subnet assignments, user interface branding options, and private WAN settings. Multi-tenant Spaces are arranged in a hierarchy, similar to a directory structure, where one root space can have multiple child spaces, and each child space can have their own child spaces, and so on.
Multi-tenant Spaces are also the basis for Private WAN. If Private WAN is enabled for a space, all the bonds in the space route their traffic to and from each other through the Aggregators and private WAN routers, rather than through the core public routers at each routing group. This allows the Multapplied SD-WAN hosts to keep the space’s traffic isolated from the traffic of all other spaces. Multi-tenant Spaces using Private WAN will typically use private networks for connected IPs and routes, rather than public networks as are usually used for non-Private WAN spaces. Aggregators and Private WAN Routers can route traffic for any number of spaces.
Though Multi-tenant Spaces are hierarchical for organization and access control in the management application, they’re not hierarchical for routing purposes. Instead, each Private WAN space is completely isolated from other spaces, even if they have a parent-child relationship in the management application.
