eTouch announces a new deployment option for SamePage, its hallmark enterprise wiki application. SamePage is now offered for on-premise enterprise customers, especially large enterprises and umbrella organizations.
SamePage customers will now have three deployment options from which they can choose: software as a service hosted by SamePage, on-premise and multi-tenancy on-premise. eTouch explains, multi-tenancy is a deployment model historically used only by SaaS vendors and products. A multi-tenant solution is used by multiple groups of people but is based on a single, shared infrastructure. An application is built to partition each group's data so that it is private, while operating on a shared system.
eTouch highlights the following features of SamePage's multi-tenant, on-premise model:increased flexibility and efficiency with horizontal scaling of the wiki within an organization;every department, division or business unit within a large enterprise can have its own private and secure domain with separate branding;Consolidation of wiki services into a single, centrally managed infrastructure can translate to significant cost savings. Hardware, network and IT overheads can be dramatically reduced; all domains can be served through a single instance that can be optimized for scalability and performance through clustering;a multi-tenanted instance of SamePage in the enterprise can integrate seamlessly with LDAP servers and SSO solutions for authentication. eTouch adds that organizations can also leverage the multi-tenant architecture of SamePage to offer secure wiki-based extranets for each of their partners, clients or external stakeholders through a single, centralized wiki.
