Multitenancy: Multiple Tenants under one roof

June 26, 2024

Multitenancy is a crucial component of cloud computing, and Onum is not one to fall behind the trends.

Virtualization is to computing what the pandemic is to working from home: the emmergence of one yeilds the power to transform the current zeigeist of the other.

Said zeitgeist in turn has forced companies to adapt their modus operandi and information models.



In Onum, a Tenant is a domain containing a set of data in your organization. Due to the rise in SaaS and Cloud-computing, this is no longer enough, as you may wish to separate off certain data sets or instances so that they can operate independently.

Think of Onum as the owner of a building containing multiple apartments. Here you will find multiple Tenants, all co-existing under one roof. They share a common access and system, yet their assets are completely separate from each other. Tenants do not interact with each other and sometimes are not even aware the other exists. The separation, as opposed to isolation, is achieved via the building architecture and design.

Bringing this to the cloud computing system, multiple Tenants keep data collected in different domains within the same cloud or on-premise installation, while keeping data safe, secure, and segregated.

Create isolated instances in your Organization while maintaining the benefits of centralized management and administration. Alternatively, you can use this architecture to share data across various tenants for ultimate visibility.

Landlord-free living?

This may not be the best solution for you. Multiple instances running on a single instance brings you increased resource efficiency, reduced costs, and simplified management.

  • Cost Reduction: Mutitenancy can significantly reduce your costs by sharing resources and reducing the load.

  • Scalability: Scale easily to accommodate growing users.

  • Efficiency: Improve efficiency by eliminating the need to maintain multiple instances of the same application.

  • Security: Today's increased security challenges require the mindful implementation of different tenants to protect your data against vulnerabilities.

Adapt your data model to include multiple Tenants and keep up-to-date in the current data storm.
