Commerceup has introduced a new way of hosting which helps our merchants in choosing their own cloud service provider (preferably AWS, GCP) and choosing right resources, machines dedicatedly running for your website independently. Commerceup is a micro services API driven headless e-commerce architecture, Which means each of our services can be combined together at one machine or can run independently to handle large scale traffic and transactions.

When you should opt for Self hosted option?

Self hosted option is for Commerceup merchants who do not want to share their resources or database with any of the other clients. Moreover, you are highly secure with compliances as everything is running in your comfortable region of your instance.

Multi tenant architecture comes with its own pros and cons. Sometimes you can easily upgrade changes and reflect for small changes can affect you or your store if not done properly. In case of self hosted your store is independently running in your choice of cloud premise. You have right to upgrade or downgrade according to your choice.

You can always opt for multiple AWS services which helps in securing your stores more from different kind of cyber attacks and much more.

Potential benefits of single-tenant self hosting include:

  • Security: A single customer and a single server is often contained on secure hardware being used by a limited number of people.

  • Dependability: With an entire environment dedicated to one client, resources are abundant and available anytime.

  • Customization: Control over the entire environment allows for customization and added functionality, if desired.

Potential drawbacks of single-tenant self include:

  • Maintenance: Single-tenant typically means more tasks and regular maintenance to keep things running smoothly and efficiently.

  • Setup/Management: By comparison, SaaS multi-tenant environments are quick to setup and manage.

  • Cost: Single-tenant typically allows for more resources, but at a premium price given that there is only one customer for the entire environment.
