“Products as a Service” or “Software as a Service” models have innate abilities to potentially scale and be cost effective for both the service owners and the consumers. They also boost the ability to effectively manage the business operations & management services. In one such instance, we have a customer with an on premise Big Data (Hadoop) based application which they were interested to offer as a Multi-tenant SaaS based solution. The customer pressed for a solution that would induce zero to minimal code changes in the existing platform’s codebase. Other specific requirements consisted of having a relatively lower cost of cloud infrastructure per customer while enabling automated on-boarding of new tenants.
