    🧭 Use Prisma as a multi-tenant provider for your application

    What's a multi-tenant application?

    A multi-tenant application is when a single instance of your application runs on a server and serves multiple tenants.

    With a multi-tenant architecture, a software application is designed to provide every tenant a dedicated share of the instance - including its data, configuration, user management, tenant individual functionality and non-functional properties.

    For example, you could run a social-network for companies, where each company would have it's own data and users.

    Why is Prisma great for multi-tenancy?

    Prisma gives you all the tools necessary to handle your database: data modeling, database schema migrations, type safe database access, etc. Doing so, prisma-multi-tenant can then automate those processes and help you make a multi-tenant application.

    Why do I need prisma-multi-tenant?

    Because prisma-multi-tenant does not only allow you to access multiple databases seamlessly with only a couple of lines of code in your server, but it also let you use the CLI to create new tenants and assure consistancy between all your databases as easily as possible.


    npm i -g prisma-multi-tenant
    prisma-multi-tenant init # Init multi-tenancy in your Prisma project 


    If this is your first time using prisma-multi-tenant, I strongly suggest that you follow the ✨ Getting Started ✨ tutorial.
