Mautic for Agencies

Which is the Best Way to Run Mautic for Agencies?

Every so often I get requests to deploy multi-tenant Mautic setups, those requests are usually from a Marketing agency that needs to run multiple Mautic instances for their customers or their internal usage, However, multi-tenancy is very often a misunderstood and misused concept.

Multi-tenancy is an architectural approach enabling a single instance of an application to be used by multiple organizations or users, the tenants. In multi-tenant apps, there is just one code base for everyone and the separation between clients is done in that single codebase and sustained by the database.

On the other hand, Multi-instance, what I call “Replication” provides each organization with its own codebase.

Let’s analyze in detail these 2 options and find out which is the best way to run Mautic for an Agency.

Mautic Installation: Mautic Hardware Requirements

The adequate amount of hardware resources you need for your Mautic installation will depend on the Mautic features you’ll be using.

Find out how to accurately forecast the Mautic Requirements for your next Mautic installation and prevent Mautic from running slow.

As a Mautic Ops freelancer and Systems Architect, I have encountered several perfectly OK Mautic installations that where just terribly slow (to the point of not being usable anymore) but otherwise perfectly OK, what usually happens is that the new server is dimensioned accordingly to some basic rules, like 1GB of RAM for every 10K users. This way of forecasting your Mautic hardware requirements is too simplistic and will inevitably lead you to a slow-running Mautic installation.

SaaS is all the rage in every industry and Marketing Automation is no exception, tools like Hubspot, Marketo, Pardot, Eloqua and many others to the count of more than a hundred MA SaaS tools!
However, SaaS tends to use a “one size fits all” service model (or better said, 3 sizes fits all), which tends to leave a big chunk of companies out of their offerings.
Your company might be one of the special outliers that don’t perfectly fit in the SaaS model. The good news is, most probably, Mautic will cover all of your needs.
