The misleading thing to me is that it sounds like I only get one database
user. As in, it creates an instance, spins up MySQL, and creates a single
tenant inside the database.

It also is ambiguous enough that one might miss the significance of the
dash and hear that it creates a single, tenant-database.

As nice as succinct descriptions are, it may be worth clarifying all of
the objects in the sentence.

Perhaps: "Trove is designed to support a multi-user database for a single
OpenStack tenant within a Nova instance."
