See the Maestro CLI User Guide for details on multi-tenant approach applied by EPAM Cloud.

Tenant/Project

Group of users independent of other groups but sharing the same cloud infrastructure and resources. A tenant may be a company or a department within a company or a customer, etc.

EPAM Cloud uses the multi-tenant approach in its billing system where different tenants are charged for the actually consumed resources. The maintenance costs are distributed between the EPAM tenants.

In EPAM Cloud, a tenant is represented by a project-region combination.

A project is a temporary logical unit to which the Cloud resources and bills are mapped. For project members to start working with the Cloud, the project has to be in the active state in UPSA.
