How to Navigate Multitenant Storage Strategies on AWS – A New SaaS Whitepaper
Storing data in a multitenant model is a key consideration for software as a service (SaaS) developers. The varying isolation needs of tenants, combined with the diverse landscape of AWS storage technologies, presents SaaS developers with a broad range of security, performance, and optimization considerations.
To help you navigate the SaaS storage landscape, we’re excited to announce the publication of a new SaaS Storage Strategies whitepaper. Throughout the paper, we assemble and evaluate the common patterns and models that developers must consider as they weigh the business and technical storage requirements of their SaaS environments. The goal is to establish a core set of storage themes and then determine how each of these themes are realized on a range of AWS storage technologies.
The paper provides detailed insight into the common considerations that will shape your implementation of multitenancy on top of Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon RDS, and Amazon Redshift. Each of these services requires a unique approach to addressing multitenancy as you evaluate the security, management, performance, and agility profile of your SaaS solution.
The broader goal is to equip you with a clear, SaaS-focused view of your storage options spanning a range of AWS storage services. The patterns and tradeoffs captured in the paper should provide a framework for evaluating your storage options and finding a solution that best aligns with the technical and business needs of your SaaS environments.
