I welcome others weighing in on this, as Postgres is not my particular strong point. That said, I don’t feel intimidated by it, so I’ll answer as best I can.

Postgres appears to have support for users/roles/permissions, and it seems we have a tutorial for some of that here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-roles-and-manage-grant-permissions-in-postgresql-on-a-vps--2

Given that you can define the permissions for users or roles on tables, I’ve no reason to suspect that postgres would have difficulty handling a multi-tenant workload. I also found an article that details someone else’s experience with it:
