multiple odoo-instances vs. multiple databases

hello!


I want to create a basic odoo-setup and use that for a few different start-up projects. What are the advantages / disadvantages of running multiple odoo instances versus just running multiple databases on the same instance?


my understanding so far:


Multiple instances running on separate user accounts

  • entirely separate databases => better security

  • configuration more flexible

  • instances can be restarted separately

  • different domains can be forwarted to different ports


multiple databases on running on same odoo instance

  • less resources

  • easier / faster set up (just copy database)

  • different logins using db name in url



Any more input on this? Thank you very much!!

Do you refer Multiple instances as Odoo Python instances? Then your understanding is not entirely correct. Multiple instances are not running per se on different database. In fact different databases are not necessary in most of the cases. But the mayor advantage of Multi Instance is to run for instance a test DB with modules that or not 100% reliable eg. different addons directories.
The third possibility is to run Multiple Organisation in one DB.
