Yes it is required, unless you limit customer's access, like preventing admin user to install new modules. There would be other things to change also. It is the way Odoo-SA manages their Saas by the way. You can build things your own way too, but the initial question of the thread didn't mention this kind of specific restrictions. > Those that might wish to sell odoo instances may wish to > claim it, but it is patently NOT true. Odoo instances are free at SISalp, of course, else customers would be willing to run apples and oranges on the same instance. It is the opposite, multiple instances require more resources for the same selling price. >From a more generic standpoint, assuming the hosted application is secure by design is a bad idea for any hoster. It was proven wrong in the past since TinyERP 2.0 til Odoo V9 and will probably be true also with next versions. Most hosters hosting multiple databases on a single instance do it because they don't know how to manage several instances seriously. Odoo-SA decided not to do it to reduce service footprint because they target millions of users.
