The software industry is clearly trending toward delivering most, if not all, business software via the software as a service (SaaS) model. SaaS offers software companies the potential for significant revenue streams by giving end-users access to powerful software functionality as a service, but the technical and business challenges incorporated in delivering software as a service can be costly if not done efficiently. As such, successful SaaS providers are those that create a highly efficient SaaS architecture which can provide maximum resource utilization without sacrificing quality.
This white paper begins with an overview of providing a SaaS offering, the primary infrastructure and delivery costs, and the requirements for market leadership before proceeding into the complexities and benefits of single-instance multi-tenancy and a critique of several compensatory strategies. The paper concludes with an explanation on how cloud middleware can solve these architectural problems thereby achieving the benefits of building your own multi-tenant stack without the onerous upfront R&D costs and long time-to-market or the poor customer management and lock-in deficiencies normally associated with leveraging Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings.
