How Do Multi-Tenant Cloud Systems Work for Small Businesses


A tenant in cloud computing refers to a customer who buys cloud computing resources. The buyer could be an individual user, multiple users, or a company. In simple terms, a tenant is a person or more who rents a house from a landlord. Similarly, a tenant who buys cloud computing resources uses the cloud server. Though, the user of the cloud infrastructure is not the owner. They are the only tenants who purchase to access it.

The global end-user spending on public cloud platforms and services is predicted to grow 23.1% by the end of this year to $332.3 billion, up from $270 billion in 2020. You can get more info here about how these systems work for businesses of all sizes.

What is a Multi-Tenant Cloud?

A multi-tenant cloud refers to an extensive cloud computing architecture. It permits several customers who share computing resources in a public or private cloud. When the program runs, the tenants can use it simultaneously. However, each tenant's data remains invisible to other tenants. It is mostly like how a bank works.

Several people can access the bank and store their money. Even though they are in the same place, their assets are isolated from others. Account-holders of the bank do not interact with each other and cannot access each other's money. Some popular multi-tenant programs include HubSpot, Dropbox, Salesforce, and many more.

Similarly, in a multi-tenant cloud system, users have specific spaces to store projects and data. Each tenant's data is out of reach to all other tenants. The multi-tenant cloud system protects the data of other users through complex permissions. Hence, access is allowed only with the cloud provider's consent.

Difference Between Private Cloud And Public Cloud

In a private cloud, the tenants may be different users or teams within a single company. Although in a public cloud, tenants from external organisations use the same infrastructure or servers to keep their data isolated and secure. Hence Company X can share infrastructure with Company Y.

Benefits Of Using Multi-Tenancy in a Small Business

Low Costs

A multi-tenant cloud allows the sharing of resources, databases, applications, and services. Hence, it costs less than a single-tenant structure. You will not be required to buy any additional infrastructure or software. New users can access the same software as the original and existing buyers.

Optimum Efficiency

Multi-tenant cloud solution offers optimum performance. As the load gets balanced between users, operational efficiency such as speed, utilisation, and response time is improved.

Maintenance costs

The SaaS subscription includes maintenance costs. Any customer can easily use an update or a new release. Hence, small businesses do not have not to worry about hiring technicians anymore.

Onboarding

The multi-tenant software is capable of instant set-up and self-service configuration. It means that it is easier to handle an onboarding process. The software also allows the personalisation of accounts by adding users, data, and third-party integrations without any assistance.

Suits Your Requirements

The multi-tenancy is capable of handling any form of demand change. If your business processes need change, the software is flexible and can easily be scaled.
