Cloud Storage Device Masking (Cope, Erl)

How can data stored on a cloud storage device be isolated to specific consumers?

Cloud Storage Device Masking

Problem

Data stored in a shared cloud environment can be vulnerable to unauthorized access by other cloud consumers.

Solution

A solution is implemented to isolate each cloud storage device from being presented to or accessed by unauthorized cloud consumers.

Application

A LUN masking mechanism can enforce defined policies at the physical storage array in order to prevent unauthorized cloud consumers from accessing a specific cloud storage device in a shared cloud environment.
Cloud Storage Device Masking: LUN masking policies can be enforced by a mechanism at Physical Storage Array A.
