  • Like Mike says, you should define what you mean.

    In the usual sense of things, SP will provide you the infrastructure you need to support multi-tenancy.  MS Online (small business on line) is a multi-tenant sharepoint environment, for example.

  • Hi,

    Multitenancy refers to a principle in software architecture where a single instance of the softwares runs on a Software as a services (Saas) vendor's servers, serving multiple client organizations (tenants).
    I want to achieve it in form of database using share point.

  • SharePoint can be used as a Saas within a corporation to support an internal corporate hosting model.  However the licensing for MOSS does not allow for it to be licensed to multiple companies which is why you don't see any shared hosted MOSS solutions -- with the exception of something like MS Online.

    WSS 3.0 does support more traditional Saas both for internal hosting models and traditional hosting models.
