Splunk and Multitenancy
Does Splunk support multitenancy?
We are asked this question quite often, especially when speaking with Managed Service Providers (MSPs).
Multitenancy refers to a principle in software architecture where a single instance of the software runs on a server, serving multiple client organizations (tenants).
By this definition, the answer is Yes.
Why would anyone want to do this? As an MSP, you may want to provide your customers with some specific functionality that Splunk provides, such as syslog, custom application, or other big data reporting.
[Note: Contact your sales representative for details regarding MSP licensing. It is different than Enterprise licensing and may not be supported under a typical EULA.]
