Every SaaS architecture must introduce mechanisms and policies that prevent noisy neighbor conditions. Getting these policies right is essential to building a robust SaaS solution that delivers a consistent experience to customers. This post looks at the different strategies that can be used to introduce the throttles (transaction rate) and quotas (transaction volume) that manage each tenant’s activity, exploring the various AWS services that can be used to bring these concepts to life.
Most SaaS solutions which undergo an AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) ingest, manage, and store sensitive data. The FTR is a review based on the AWS Well-Architected Framework and enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in their solutions. Learn how to manage and secure sensitive data within their SaaS solutions with a focus on addressing requirements related to PII or PHI requirements in the Foundational Technical Review.
SAP systems need a capable document management solution.

Explore the Syntax CxLink Documents solution and the process of how to handle a large number of documents from SAP applications and storing them directly on Amazon S3.
Amazon OpenSearch Service is frequently used by SaaS providers to address a broad range of use cases. The use of Amazon OpenSearch Service in a multi-tenant environment, however, introduces a collection of new considerations that will influence how you partition, isolate, deploy, and manage your solution.
