How Multi-Tenancy Works in SaaS
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a method of software delivery where a third-party hosts the application in the cloud and makes it accessible for the users through the Internet and a browser. In SaaS delivered applications, multi-tenancy is an architecture in which a single instance of the application serves multiple customers, or tenants. The architecture typically offers centralized administration and leverages a common code application to operate these common instance(s). Multi-tenancy also secures the private data for each of the tenants from the other.
The benefits of multi-tenant SaaS include:
Multi-tenant based applications allow for an additional layer to enable customizations while still maintaining the underlying codebase, which remains constant for all tenants).
Multi-tenancy streamlines maintenance and management processes to saves time and cost. In addition, the infrastructure requirements for multi-tenancy application are minimized and there is no need to configure a dedicated set of resources.
Through multi-tenancy, the vendor can update the codebase of a single application and make the changes instantly available to all users. This also makes the process of spinning up an additional instance of the software for a new customer fast and easy.
