Users from multiple tenants remotely access resources in the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. SaaS is attractive to budget-constrained enterprises due to its low cost. Sharing of application servers among multiple tenants are necessary to achieve low costs in SaaS environments. Tenant-specific customization are required to accommodate many tenants. This paper describes methods to support multi-tenancy in SaaS environments. The proposed methods support tenant-specific customization and sharing of application servers.
