With IBM® Spectrum Virtualize and object-based access control, you can implement multi-tenancy and secure storage usage in a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment. This document will show you how to secure the storage access of the OpenShift users to the IBM Spectrum® Virtualize array. Restricting access helps you to avoid the over-consumption of storage by one or more users. The uses cases in this document can be expanded to using this control to provide assistance with billing.
