SaaS Architecture Patterns: From Concept to Implementation

Exploring different design models for implementing multi-tenant SaaS applications.

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Building a SaaS Application on AWS

SaaS architecture varies across domains, stacks, and customer requirements. However, there are well-defined patterns that must be addressed by SaaS solutions.

Identity, onboarding, tenant isolation, data partitioning, tiering—these are among the patterns that, while implemented differently on AWS stacks and services, are core to most SaaS solutions.

In this session, take a detailed dive into the landscape of these SaaS patterns.

For each one, we’ll move from concept to implementation, looking at the permutations of architecture and code that are used to bring these patterns to life with different compute, storage, identity, networking, and management constructs.

Supporting extensibility in SaaS environments

SaaS providers are often looking for ways to offer extensibility to their customer and partners. However, supporting extensibility in multi-tenant SaaS environments can be challenging. How you prevent noisy neighbor, isolate tenants, and validate and sandbox third-party code are some of the considerations that SaaS developers must address.

In this session, consider how a range of patterns and strategies can be used to introduce extensibility without undermining the availability, scale, security, or performance of your SaaS solution.

SaaS Migration: Moving From Single-Tenant to Multi-Tenant on AWS

Many organizations start their path to SaaS with single-tenant environments that they would like to transition. Finding a migration approach that balances the needs of the business with the cost, and competitive pressures of adopting SaaS is challenging, and building a solution with a clean slate is not always possible.

This session will identify the most common SaaS migration patterns and preview specific architecture, operational, deployment, and build strategies that are used to implement these patterns.

Optimizing your multi-tenant SaaS architecture

Building and delivering a multi-tenant solution is a good start. However—even after it’s up and running—you should be continually looking at ways to optimize your SaaS environment, identifying opportunities to refine your solution and maximize the operational efficiency, growth, agility, and innovation of your SaaS offering.

In this session, learn specific design and architecture patterns and practices that you can use to refine the footprint of your SaaS application. This session highlights specific techniques and architecture strategies that can have a direct impact on the success of your SaaS business.

SaaS migration: Inside a real-world multi-tenant transformation

SaaS migration can be daunting for some organizations. How do you introduce multi-tenancy without refactoring a lot of code? How do you introduce multi-tenant identity, isolation, onboarding, and billing to an existing environment?

In this session, dig into the end-to-end details of a sample migration, looking at the new code, design, and architecture that you need to migrate your solution. As part of this, consider how your existing application code and services are refactored to support multi-tenancy. The goal is to dive deep on all the moving parts of a migration through the lens of a real-world example.

SaaS microservices deep dive: Simplifying multi-tenant development

At some point in building a SaaS environment, the attention shifts to how multi-tenancy will influence how the builders on your team design and code their multi-tenant microservices. Multi-tenancy requires you to introduce new mechanisms to address authorization, data access, tenant isolation, metrics, billing, logging, and a host of other considerations.

In this session, dive deep into multi-tenant microservices, looking at the various patterns and strategies that can be used to bring a multi-tenant microservice to life without imposing added complexity on your SaaS builders.
