What is Multi-Tenancy?

Multi-tenancy for cloud-based applications is more than just software architecture. It is a single instance of a software application that serves multiple customers, known as “tenants”. In the multi-tenant model, customers generally share a common server & database, however, their data is kept strictly isolated and secure, with no visibility or interaction between tenants.

This approach offers the benefits of shared resources, majorly saving costs and resources while maintaining rigorous data security and privacy for each tenant.

Benefits of Multi-Tenancy in OpsView & Analytics

In OpsView & Analytics, multi-tenancy offers one significant advantage.

Substantial Cost Savings: This strategic shift simplifies the management of server resources, avoiding the costly inefficiencies of maintaining a single-tenant setup for each customer. This enables Kaleris to lower costs for our customers, providing significant savings.

We estimate that an average customer can save up to 40% on hosting costs compared to a single-tenant setup.

Alongside these tangible cost benefits, OpsView & Analytics’ multi-tenant environment promises additional user benefits, enriching your experience while staying mindful of your bottom line, such as;   

1. On demand scaling: Greater flexibility to scale server resources based on need. This agility allows for real-time resource allocation, enabling tenants to access additional capacity when needed without paying for idle resources. This flexibility is ideal for applications like OpsView & Analytics, which require varying levels of computing power for data analysis and execution.

2. Enhanced Integration: Faster and simpler integration with other cloud-based software applications through APIs. This integration capability enhances the role of data analytics in delivering improved real-time yard operations, yard utilization, and supply chain visibility.

3. Simplified end-user maintenance & liabilities: With the underlying infrastructure and multitenant database containers managed by vendors like AWS/ Azure, customers benefit from their expertise in security, redundancy and system reliability. This reduces the maintenance burden for customers, allowing them to focus on their core business without worrying about server upkeep. These vendors are known for their reliability and proven track record, assuring you that your data is secure, while offering a “hands-free” approach that keeps operations running smoothly.
