What service/tool would you use to implement multi-instance SaaS

I'm currently trying to build a MVP for a SaaS idea I had. I intend for every SaaS client to run their own instance of the application (for customisation and isolation purposes), so some sort of multi-tenant/multi-instance architecture. Currently to try to achieve this scenario, I have been thinking along these lines

  • Kubernetes Multi-tenant cluster (This seemed like the most promising as I've seen a couple of companies do this e.g Kolide. I haven't proceeded with this as I'm new to the Kubernetes scene, so the learning curve was crazy and I don't have that much time)

  • Switching databases depending on the subdomain value e.g switches to client1's database. (This didn't work out because the open source CMS I used doesn't support switching databases ☚ī¸)

What tools/services are you using to handle such scenarios? Thanks for your time.

Thank you. I've heard of the options offered by language frameworks as well. Do you know any language independent methods ?
