Version 2013 R2 introduces the concept of multitenancy to Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This is a principle in software architecture where a single application instance serves multiple client organizations (tenants). It differs from multiple-instance architectures where each client organizations has a separate application instance. Multitenancy is considered to be an important feature of cloud computing. It enables a maintainable and scalable application. The multitenancy architecture is a repeatable architecture, which exactly matches the goal for Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
