Learn in detail about SAP S/4HANA Cloud Single vs. Multi-tenant options.

When you have to choose between SAP S/4HANA single-tenant edition and multi-tenant edition, you might end up muddled.

Both S/4HANA single-tenant and multi-tenant have their own pros and cons.

Let’s dive deeper into the SAP ERP Cloud Platform and learn more about it

Why choose SAP Single Tenant Edition?

SAP Single Tenant Edition (STE) is one of the most common SAP cloud offerings. With this platform, you can let your customers discover the solutions you need for your business. As the name suggests, this application is for a single-customer belonging to a dedicated landscape. You get the full S/4HANA scope. But you cannot achieve the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), time-to-value and speed of innovation in SAP S/4HANA Cloud. If your customers couldn’t get the expected functional scope, then STE is the option for you.

These are all the top features of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Single Tenant Edition:

  • More customizable and configurable process for HR, Finance, Sales, Procurement and other LoBs but comes along with its own limitations.
  • Get the right industry support even when SAP S/4HANA Cloud doesn’t directly support it.
  • Get 2 upgrades in a span of 3 years contract. The customer can choose the upgrade window unlike SAP S/4HANA Cloud where you get new upgrades in every quarter.
  • SAP didn’t just managed SAP HEC. Customers have the choice to run all their systems on GCP, AWS and Microsoft Azure. This can help them choose across 100+ Data Centers from all over the world.
  • Get Flexible License System and Cloud Infrastructure System Landscape.
  • Integrate with OnPrem System and Public Cloud systems
  • Get Enterprise support with a single license package


Customers don’t fret about moving to  SAP Cloud ERP or the benefits involved. They need deeper insights on customisation and the value they can get in mean time. This is the reason SAP introduced SAP S/4HANA STE to enable customers to accustom to cloud and make the most out of the business value. This can help them prepare towards their move to SAP S/4HANA public cloud in the near future.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud single vs multi-tenant

Multi-tenant hosting

It is a separate product like the free and premium version of a software.

Multi-tenant hosting is a special architecture where a number of companies would be sharing the same infrastructure for their business data storage. The overall infrastructure design supports the business information while keeping the data that belongs to every company secure and separate. It is similar to multiple tenants present in an apartment block. Every tenant has their own unit with configurable features on their living space.

What are the top advantages of SAP S/4HANA Cloud Multi-tenant hosting?

  • Every growing business can lower their cost in comparison to single-tenant solutions
  • You can save considerable amount of power and hardware
  • Get seamless upgrades without much intervention
  • It has limited drawbacks with customization and updates.


Moving on to single tenant or multi-tenant comes up with its own set of challenges for businesses. You need the right expert guidance to make it happen effectively.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud Single tenant is a customisable and configurable process that can extend up to a certain level for Human Resources, Finance, Sales, Procurement and other such LoBs.

In SAP, a single tenant architecture can be highly reliable and scalable in contrast to multi-tenant applications where customers can host hardware and access their own virtual machines. In multi-tenancy, the vendor can utilise the shared resources.

A multi-tenant cloud is nothing but a cloud computing architecture allowing customers to share their computing resources in either a public or private cloud.
