Large organizations use multiple databases across multiple platforms on different servers. In this model, each database has its own application and server. Improvements in technology have allowed servers to handle more substantial workloads, and databases now use a fraction of the server capacity. This causes a waste in resources. Multi-tenant architecture offers a solution to this problem in database consolidation.
What Is Multi-Tenant Cloud Architecture?
A multi-tenant cloud is a type of software architecture that lets users share resources on a public or private cloud. A tenant in this case refers to any of the users. Within this architecture, a tenant’s data is isolated, and thus not available to the other tenants. In private cloud, tenants can be different divisions of the same company, but in a public cloud, tenants are unrelated organizations.
Benefits of Multi-Tenant Architecture
- Database consolidation
- Cost reduction
- Quickly move data and code
- Improved scalability
- Fewer patches and updates
- Easier performance tuning
- Optimized efficiency
- Separation of data and code
- Support for Oracle Database Resource Manager
- Easily monitor and manage database
Multi-Tenant Integration Services
APT .RED works to build multi-tenant application servers that are tailored to your needs. In doing so, our network architecture professionals determine the application server needed for implementation, define response times and performance goals, consider load volumes for configuration and installation, determine scalability, define service and application deployment topologies, and plan network topology for multi-tenant application servers.
Multi-Tenant Automation Solutions
With the challenges of network configurations, automation of this process is paramount. When building multi-tenant services for our clients, we create deployment-automation scripts for configuration and installation. Scalability and new on-boarding will depend on application server resources, as well as ensuring replication of infrastructure stacks and application-layer infrastructure. It is a requirement that system scripts are forecast for automated installation of application servers when new accounts and services are being added to the foundation.
APT .RED database solutions with multi-tenant functionality can produce efficient and uncomplicated results that have a track record of delivering long-term ROI results. Partner with database solutions consultants that understand things from your perspective and will maintain ongoing communication, transparency, and timeline goals.
