TECH-B13 Happily Cohabitating: Achieving a Multi-Tenant Portal
David Eyerman, Executive IT Architect, IBM
In your organization, are lines of business all competing to have “their” portal? Does each business owner have a rock-solid argument for why their site needs dedicated infrastructure? As organizations mature in their use of portals, we are seeing many of them experience a growth in their portal footprint as IT departments stand up dedicated infrastructure to support each line of business or application. Many organizations are implementing IBM WebSphere Portal to provide a multi-tenant capability, in which multiple applications can share infrastructure while retaining appropriate levels of isolation and quality of service. In this session, the team will present a new pattern, drawn from real customer engagements, for achieving such a multi-tenant architecture. They will show how to manipulate portal configuration to achieve JVM-level isolation between virtual portals and tell you how customers are using this to achieve consolidation of their portal and WCM infrastructure. They will also touch on how to operate and govern such an infrastructure, how to onboard of applications or tenants and how virtualization techniques can simplify management of the system.
