Tenant Database

Tenant database describes a collection of databases with identical database schema. Each individual database corresponds to a tenant. Typical scenarios:

  • A team may provide a Software as a Service (SaaS) application. It provides a separate instance for each of its customers/tenants, and each tenant has its own database.
  • A team may provide multi-region deployments, and each region is a separate instance having its own database.

A tenant can be a SaaS application customer, a region, a game server name and etc. Whenever application wants to make schema changes, it needs to apply the change to all databases across all tenants.
