Multi-Tenancy of MotionTools

MotionTools is a multi-tenancy system and each Operator typically has their own tenant. This means that each Operator has their own set of users, data and a custom configuration that reflect the nature of their business. 

 

Basic intro to multi-tenancy

A tenant is identified by a custom URL for users to browse to and a so called Company ID, which needs to be entered in the driver app before logging in. A typical URL would be company_name.motiontools.io whereas the company id would then also be company_name. 

MotionTools offers white-labeling features, so that the MotionTools-brand itself won't be visible to customers of operators that use MotionTools as their operating system. 

 

Learn more about Multi-tenancy

Software multitenancy is a software architecture in which a single instance of software runs on a server and serves multiple tenants. Systems designed in such manner are "shared" (rather than "dedicated" or "isolated"). A tenant is a group of users who share a common access with specific privileges to the software instance. With a multitenant architecture, a software application is designed to provide every tenant a dedicated share of the instance - including its data, configuration, user management, tenant individual functionality and non-functional properties. Multitenancy contrasts with multi-instance architectures, where separate software instances operate on behalf of different tenants. Read more on Wikipedia.
