Understanding Sub-Accounts in a Hybrid Cloud Environment


In today’s dynamic cloud landscape, businesses are increasingly adopting hybrid cloud solutions to meet their diverse infrastructure needs. One key aspect of managing hybrid cloud environments is understanding how sub-accounts function within this framework. Let’s delve into this topic to gain a deeper understanding of its operational design and benefits.


At its core, sub-account functionality operates in a hybrid mode, providing users with separated billing and the flexibility to utilize both owned and shared resources. This means that organizations can invite other individuals or entities as sub-accounts to their main tenant, granting them varying levels of permissions on specific resources. Additionally, different roles can be assigned to sub-accounts, allowing for granular control over access and operations.


For example, the main account owner (referred to as User A) can invite other users (User B or C) as sub-accounts to their main tenant. Each sub-account, such as User B or C, has its own wallet, whether prepaid or post-paid, and is solely responsible for billing related to the resources they create. However, they can still manage resources shared by User A without bearing billing responsibility.


The authorization of sub-account users is contingent upon the validity of the invitation, which can be revoked or modified by User A as needed. This gives User A the flexibility to adjust permissions and roles in real-time, ensuring optimal control over their cloud environment.


In summary, sub-accounts play a crucial role in hybrid cloud environments by enabling organizations to effectively manage access, permissions, and billing within their infrastructure. By understanding how sub-accounts operate and their associated benefits, businesses can leverage this functionality to streamline operations, enhance security, and optimize resource utilization in their cloud deployments. Stay tuned for more insights on how to maximize the potential of hybrid cloud solutions for your organization.
