Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Orchestrator, System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator

A tenant in Service Provider Foundation is a customer of a hoster, and the customer is maintained in the database together with its status, metadata, and with one or more of the following associations:

  • To a stamp.

    A stamp in Service Provider Foundation is a logical scale unit designed for scalability that provides an association between a server and its System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1)components. As tenant demand increases, the hoster provides additional stamps to meet the demand. Currently, Service Provider Foundation supports only one type of stamp; that is a single server that has Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) installed.

  • To a trusted issuer and a public key.

    A public key to a certificate and the name of the trusted issuer can be specified for a tenant when the tenant is created.

  • To an offer.

    Offers provide associations for a provider's plan to stamps and tenants.

  • To tenant security user roles.

    A Tenant Administrator Role and one or more Tenant Self-Service user roles can be associated with a tenant.
