One of the salient features of Cloud is its adoption of Multitenancy architecture. Let us understand this with example there is software which is customizable now different customers wants different types of customization in any particular software. Now typically what is followed is multi-instance architecture where separate software instances (or hardware systems) are set up for different client organizations but there is one more option a multitenant architecture, where a software application is designed to virtually partition its data and configuration, and each client organization works with a customized virtual application instance.
