What is Multitenant?
‘Multitenant’ is a kind of software that is able to serve multiple customers simultaneously. The most common example of a multitenant software are the software based on the SaaS architecture.
Popular cloud based solutions are the perfect example of the application of a multitenant architecture since they can be accessed by multiple companies and work on data sets that are mutually exclusive while the entire processing is being done on a single instance of the SaaS software.
In this case, each company is like a ‘tenant’ living within a certain section of the software. This also means that the software developer is able to make real time updates to the software which will be reflected for all the companies using the software in real time.
