Why Multi-Tenant Architecture Is The Way Of The Future
By Jager Robinson | October 25, 2022
As eCommerce continues to require more computing power, data, and native interconnectivity, it’s vital that your eCommerce platform is scalable, cost-effective, and fast. Most legacy eCommerce solution providers remain focused on the old way of providing a locked, single-tenant approach to software architecture. But what is the difference between single- and multi-tenant software architecture?
The Tenants of eCommerce
Single-tenant software architecture is the idea of there being one single instance of the software and supporting infrastructure to serve one single customer. With single tenancy, software and infrastructure are not shared, and it is a closed loop of information.
With multi-tenant software, that single instance of software and architecture serves multiple customers. Each customer shares the software application, the database, and the infrastructure all while keeping their data private.
Why Does This Matter?
While single-tenant architecture is good at securing your organization’s hardware and software against outside attacks due to a limited number of people using your systems and remains dependable due to dedicated infrastructure, the limited nature of the software means maintenance, setup, and cost are all wildly inappropriate for today’s fast-moving market where adaptability, scalability, and growth are everything.
Maintaining infrastructure for one person and one dedicated use of software means more frequent checks to ensure the architecture is running smoothly and efficiently. Due to the nature of on-site data storage and infrastructure, setup and the costs associated with running that facility and software skyrocket.
In a multi-tenant system, which many cloud-based API solutions are based, many customers sharing the cost for data storage and operation means a lowered software and organization cost associated. Integrations to new applications are done at a faster pace through the use of APIs and established connections with other customers. Above all else, utilizing this cloud-based architecture also means “hands-free” maintenance as your SaaS vendor will take care of any technical issues that arise from using the product.

Our state-of-the-art infrastructure is run on multi-tenant architecture and utilizes each of the above benefits to help our customers onboard new vendors in under an hour, integrate with all file types, and create new products and solutions that our customers need in record time.
While legacy eCommerce solutions provide software that may be multi-tenant in nature, many still charge exorbitant fees to connect vendors or do even the simplest tasks. Logicbroker’s cost savings of utilizing our multi-tenant, cloud-based API are passed on to our customers.
