Using the cloud in your business is undoubtedly beneficial for infrastructure, security, marketing, and deployment. Depending on your business needs, you’ll have to choose whether to use single-tenant or multi-tenant cloud architecture.
Single-tenant architecture is when a single client uses a dedicated cloud server. Conversely, multi-tenant cloud architecture is meant for multiple clients, all of whom share the same server segment.
Generally, cloud computing has 3 different server types:
- Public servers
- Private servers
- Hybrid servers
Private servers are usually known for single-tenancy and public ones for multi-tenancy. But that isn’t always the case. In some scenarios, you’d want to host multiple clients on a private server or would need dedicated servers on public cloud servers.
