In an interview at the Interop networking conference last week, John Engates, CTO of Rackspace emphasized that at all modern networking is multi-tenant at some level: When you think about it, we all share the same basic switching and networking infrastructure.
"The Internet is a big multi-tenant network," Engates said. "We're doing multi-tenancy all over the place -- [yet] people embrace it in one place and then on the other hand they downplay it like it's the worst thing. At this point, I think it's more about lack of awareness -- and Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt."
