yes, your recommendation is wise. There are few proven multi-tenant
solutions maintained over time available and able to manage a
reasonable number of contracts. I don't know how many environments are
in production under clouder yet, but it is the most elaborated
solution for a flexible solution.
Nevertheless, despite what https://www.goclouder.net/ claims, you
cannot get a robust infrastructure if it is managed by a weak
administrator. The most important point here for a new Saas player is
to learn how it works and master any detail of the life cycle before
committing to host customers' data for years. Developers often
underestimate how long term admin is specific.
Several proven Odoo integrators sub-contract their OEM Saas farms to
SISalp, I guess I'm not alone providing this service. I'm often
surprised to see so many new Saas offerings on the net made by
complete beginners on Odoo.
