Introduced the multi-tenant backend architecture for commercetools Frontend

11 August 2023

commercetools Frontend now has a multi-tenant backend architecture. This change lets you serve your API hub instance for your commercetools Frontend projects in a more scalable and efficient way.

The main improvements resulting from this new architecture are:

  • You will no longer use sandboxes to develop extensions. An environment in a development cluster is created automatically.
  • Website latency will decrease since cloud functions run on a cluster close to your customer’s target location.

If your projects are already set up on the new multi-tenant architecture, you do not need to take any actions.

If your projects are set up on the old single-tenant architecture, you need to perform some changes. Please contact your Customer Success Manager for further information.

The Studio underwent some modifications to support this change.

Our documentation is updated to reflect the changes.
