A tenant database is a SQL Anywhere database that has been added to the cloud.
Tenant databases contain data for the end users of the cloud. A tenant database includes the database itself (read-write copy), as well as any read-only copies of the database.
When a client application connects to a tenant database, it specifies the database name, cloud location, and a database user ID and password. The cloud directs the connection request to the appropriate host and cloud server.
