Having worked on a couple of multi-tenant projects I thought I'd share my experiences with them.

A multitenant system services multiple clients (tenants) at the same time from a single production. This type of system avoids setting up and maintaining a different production environment for each new client. Multi-tenancy promises better economies of scale and simplify deployment at the expense of additional development complexity.

The trade-off is development complexity. Here is a list of challenges you might face when implementing multi-tenancy:

Before starting a multitenant system do consider the development complexities involved. Multitenant systems make sense when buying expensive licenses for your application servers and databases, but they can add significant complexity to your design.
