Whistlepost is flexible in how it may be deployed in order to support both single and multi-tenancy configurations.

Single tenant

Tenancy refers to how many independent sites are simultaneously hosted. A single tenant approach is the simplest deployment model, however for some use cases it may also be more expensive in terms of resources.


Single tenancy provides the best support for containerisation, in that the entire site may be published as a container image and capitalise on all the benefits of containerisation such as horizontal scaling, rolling updates and/or blue-green deployments.


A multi-tenancy model provides a single whistlepost instance that hosts multiple sites concurrently. Multi-tenancy offers a greater ability to scale with less resources, however at the expense of features such as horizontal scaling of the hosted sites.
