    Hi Everyone,

    We are currently running Landmark and LSF on-premise on  AIX/DB2, and there is some discussion about moving to Windows/SQL on the Infor Cloud.  One of the things that is being discussed is whether we should go multi-tenant or single-tenant.  

    We are HEAVY users of DB2 SQL queries in interfaces and flows, and we also do a significant amount of command-line scripting for things like triggering processes via our external enterprise scheduler.

    For those of you who are multi-tenant cloud:

    -- Do you have direct SQL SELECT access to your system?

    -- Do you have Landmark/LSF command-line access to your system?

    -- Do you have SFTP access to your system?

    My impression has always been that the multi-tenant option eliminates both direct SQL and command-line access, but I'd like to know if that is really the case.  I'd also hear the "real world" answer instead of the "salesperson" answer.

    Thanks!

    Kelly

    I haven't received any responses to my question about multi-tenant cloud customers and SQL access. Does anyone have input on this issue? I really need to know if I need to push single-tenant cloud. Thanks!

    Woozy, not sure if you're still looking for an answer, but multi-tenant cloud customers do not have SQL access.
    Thanks for using the LawsonGuru.com forums!

    Thanks John. I figured that was the case. That completely removes the multi-tenant option for us - at least with Infor. However, I think we had already decided not to take that approach anyway.

    Thanks for the response!

    This answer pertains to V11 MT


    -- Do you have direct SQL SELECT access to your system? No SQL Access to System

    -- Do you have Landmark/LSF command-line access to your system? NO access to command line but some of command line utilities, Log files are being made available to Administration Console

    -- Do you have SFTP access to your system? Yes , Only for a specific directory in which we can create more sub directories for our Interfaces or Configuration Migration or Export/Import

    Kelly,

     

    I was under the impression that single-tenant is no longer an option. Did you find otherwise? We are also looking at our options.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Lisa,

    I changed jobs a year ago, so I'm out-of-the-loop on Infor.   I wouldn't be surprised if single-tenant was no longer offered.  It really doesn't make sense from the Infor perspective as multi-tenant gives them the biggest bang for the buck and eliminates the frustrations of dealing with different customers on different releases.  We are still on-prem, and expect to remain that way with our Infor platforms for now.

    Good Luck!
