Django Multi-tenant Applications#
What is a Multi-tenant app#
A single application that serves multiple customers, each customer’s data is completely seperate and is called a tenant.
Common Approaches to Multi-tenancy#
Shared Database with shared schema#
A single schema in a single db, the
ForeignKey identifies the tenant.
- Weak seperation of tenant data
- Tenant isolation code is intermixed with app code
Shared Databse with isolated schema#
A single databse keeps the tenant’s data. Each tenants data is in a seperate schema within a single db.
Isolated databse with shared App Server#
Database identifies the tenant
Completely isolated tenants using Docker#
A new set of docker containers are launched for each tenant. A set of containers identifies the tenant.
