Multitenancy

V‑Spark supports both on-premise and cloud deployments. In both of these instances, setting up an organized and configurable multitenant solution is important for the security and functionality of the tool. Multitenancy enables multiple “tenants” or groups of users to have access to the same engine instance of V‑Spark although configurations and data are kept separate.

In the cloud, multitenancy enables multiple companies to use the same V‑Spark interface without each company knowing about one another. Alternatively, an on-premise deployment allows groups within a company to view audio independent of other groups, keeping private data separate from the larger set of company users.

Companies, Organizations, and User Accounts

V‑Spark uses a 3-level hierarchical structure to define the entities that represent each distinct tenant. At the top level, each user account is associated with a single Company, generally defined as the company the user works for. A company must have at least one Organization, which generally represents a group or department within a company. At the lowest level, a User Account has configurable company- and organization-oriented permissions. For more information about user permissions see User Account Settings, Permissions, and Administration.

Monitored Folders and Applications

In V‑Spark, audio is categorized by its source into folders and managed in the Folders section under Settings. Each folder is associated with one Organization within a Company. Applications are customized analytics tools set up in the Applications section also under Settings. Each Application can be associated with multiple folders of an Organization and cannot be shared across Organizations. These will be discussed in more detail in Folder Management and Application Management.
