Sitefinity Cloud has a single-tenancy architecture, where the services for each customer are completely isolated via dedicated infrastructure contained in separate Azure subscription and Azure Active Directory.

After purchasing a Sitefinity Cloud subscription, each customer gets their own dedicated organization. Each Sitefinity Cloud subscription corresponds to a project in the organization. When a customer purchases additional Sitefinity Cloud subscriptions, these are added as extra projects.
The following diagram illustrates a high-level Sitefinity Cloud customer organization:

Sitefinity Cloud Customer Organization

Each Sitefinity Cloud subscription (project) hosts a single Sitefinity application that has a single codebase. The application is deployed consecutively to multiple environments through the built-in CI/CD pipeline. By default, a Sitefinity Cloud subscription (project) includes Production and Staging environments, but additional environments can be purchased on demand. The Sitefinity application can host multiple websites by using the Multisite module in Sitefinity. 

The following diagram illustrates the different components in a Sitefinity Cloud subscription (project) and their interrelations:
