One process to deploy to thousands of tenants

Deploy with consistency, speed, and without duplicating effort, to thousands of retail stores, hospitals, data centers, or customers.



Tenanted deployments and why they're difficult

Multi-tenancy is when you deliver software to many production instances, targets, or customers. Most organizations serve multi-tenancy software with a tenanted deployment strategy.

Tenanted deployments are complex. Each deployment usually has unique needs, like features, branding, or compliance. That means tenanted deployments often slow deployment rates, duplicate processes, and introduce risk.

Complex deployments like these are simpler with Octopus's built-in Tenants feature.

You can deliver software to some or all of your tenants with only one deployment process and scale quickly, reliably, and securely.

Use cases

What multi-tenant deployments look like

Physical locations, like retail stores, hospitals, banks, and more


This is a common scenario if you run software in brick-and-mortar locations. You may need separate deployments because each site has its own needs, like timezones, outage windows, and technology. Octopus lets you deploy to all physical locations and meet those needs without duplicating effort.

Isolated infrastructure for each SaaS customer


In this scenario, you host a SaaS or PaaS platform and many customers access it in their own instance. This is common for many SaaS platforms. Octopus's Tenants feature lets you define your process once and deploy to each customer instance.

How it works

Octopus simplifies tenanted deployments

See how Octopus orchestrates tenanted deployments for Vet Clinic, a fictional software platform used in vet clinics in many different locations.

icon release

Release across environments

Manage tenanted deployments how it best suits you. Deploy to one tenant, some, or all at once, or specific release rings, based on defined tenant tags.

icon release

Single deployment process

Define one deployment process, seamlessly connect it to either side of your deployment pipeline, and use it for as many customers or locations as you need. Manage each tenant's unique processes, customizations, and features using tenant tags and variables.

Configure variables

Define variable values, like database connection strings or API keys, that are different for each tenant in your project.
