One of the main trends of recent years in software design is a shift to a Software as a Service (SaaS) paradigm which brings a number of advantages for both software developers and end users. However, along with these benefits this transition brings new architectural challenges. One of such challenges is the implementation of a data storage that would meet the needs of a service-provider, at the same time providing a fairly simple application programming interface for software developers. In order to develop effective solutions in this area, the architectural features of cloud-based applications should be taken into account. Among others, such key features are the need for scalability and quick adaptation to changing conditions. This paper provides a brief analysis of the problems in the field of cloud data storage systems based on the relational model and it proposes the concept of database cluster designed for applications with a multi-tenant architecture. Besides, the article describes a simulation model of such a cluster, as well as the main stages of its development and the main principles forming its foundation.
