Operating in a cloud multi-tenant architecture environment comes with a lot of business benefits, including:
A multi tenant system and a single-tenant architecture differ mainly in the number of application instances. A multi-tenant system supports up to as many users as possible while the latter option limits one user only per platform.
For instance, a multi tenant service means several businesses can leverage one primary eCommerce codebase to run their online shops. On the other hand, a single-tenant model means the user leverages a software codebase that is unique to their online store.
There are two main components of a multi-tenant eCommerce platform, including:
Store owners can leverage the first part to manage various eCommerce site functionalities, such as inventory and product price updates, as well as CMS management.
The admin console helps the service provider (platform owner) to manage user accounts and offer customer services. The admin console can also integrate seamlessly with CRMs and payment systems.
The most common multitenancy example is Shopify. Shopify has a competitive advantage over other cloud service providers when it comes to multitenancy. Even better, the platform offers customized data reporting solutions for every user.
Selz is another multi-tenant platform that allows retailers to set up shops and sell on the go. The platform’s advantage is an in-built processing system that supports multicurrency. The platform also allows users to sell across multiple channels, just like Shopify.
Another example is the Squarespace multitenant architecture, which is a fully hosted and completely managed platform for cloud computing. Besides centralizing the system on a memory grid, Squarespace platform supports swift scalability too.
Gepard supports multitenant service as part of its flexible SaaS platform, where every user enjoys the proven stability and scalability of the software, combined with PIM integrations customized for each tenant and their databases kept and processed separately. Within each tenant, the platform offers multiple levels of access, depending on the user’s role and permissions.
The other advantages of Gepard multitenancy include:
A private cloud solution is a solution with a computing virtualized environment that is exclusively dedicated to a single user, without sharing its resources to the other entity.
A multi-tenant database includes a single computing instance that supports multiple users simultaneously.
Some disadvantages of multitenancy include limited flexibility for app integrations, as well as stringent access and authentication controls. Also, there are higher chances that the updates to the system can affect all clients, since everybody relies on the same codebase, thus the maintenance period will affect all tenants.
A tenant in the server implies that there is a user or a group of users who have common access to the software and share the specific rights of use.
A multitenant PIM software means ready-made and customizable PIM solutions, automatic up-to-date platform upgrades, data security, and seamless scalability that supports customized integrations.
