A multi-tenant database provides database support to a number of separate and distinct groups of users—especially helpful when deploying SaaS applications in the Cloud.
Tenant support is implemented in a number of ways, including:
- Database layer
- Built-in support for multiple tenants within a single database
- Tenant-aware database utilities and tools
The data administration console also makes it easier to manage tenants. It includes the ability to:
- Rename tenants, tenant groups and/or tenant domains
- Dump and load tenant data
- Filter and batch large datasets via an improved user interface
- Back-up and restore
Tenant partition management also features drag and drop support, making management much easier.
