Single vs Multi Tenancy

UXAPI manages your physical infrastructure in what's called a "single tenant solution," but what does that mean?

Multi Tenant = Shared Resources
One of the big advantages of a shared environment has always been being able to share the overhead of the tools. Rather than paying for all the CPUs and data storage all by yourself, you can expect to pay less by sharing those costs with other customers. We call that "multi-tenancy" and you can expect most Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions to use shared tools like this to save costs, and, hopefully, make the service more affordable.

The big disadvantage is that other customers might use more than their share. It's like sharing a house; if there are too many other guests, you might have to wait longer to use the restroom. If someone has an accident and starts a fire in their room, the whole place might burn down and everyone might lose everything.

Single Tenant = Private Resources
"Single-tenancy" means you have your own house that is protected. For our API-as-a-Service it means you have your own compute units to process requests and your own data storage where all your API data is stored. If some other customer suddenly gets a million API calls, those calls go to their infrastructure and won't slow down your API. If someone is careless with security keys, your data is still locked away in your own private storage.

UXAPI is built on modern, microservice architecture which means we can use only the amount of computing and data that each customer needs so we don't have to build big, expensive servers and hope to share that cost -- you pay for what you use and not for other people's data or compute time.

Of course this is still a service, which means the software and data storage are maintained by our team. So, unlike owning your own infrastructure, we're always making the software better, faster and more efficient to take advantage of emerging cloud technologies.

So, you can think of single tenancy SaaS like living in a private home, with a staff who take care of maintaining it and keeping you secure.

Give us a few keywords, or give us a spreadsheet, and we'll turn it into an industry standard API complete with documentation you can share with your team or your customers.

We use modern, cloud-native technologies to host your API for the best uptime and response times. API as a Service means you don't have to worry about the complexities of cloud architecture, and you get focus on your application.

Security should never be an afterthought, but it should never get in the way of your project either. We build all our tools with security in mind, so when you need to add user level rules for who gets to do what, it's just a matter of adding a few rules.
