This week I will post the lightning talks that were done at the 2nd Melbourne Cloudcamp for 2011. I was really impressed with the depth of technical discussions with each of the lightning talks.

The first lightning talk at the was done by Simon Raik-Allen @SimonRaikAllen. In this talk he discusses the issues of choosing to develop a single-tenant applications vs. a multi-tenant application.

Simon covers a lot of good discussion points and mentions how other companies are tackling the problem (such as salesforce and 4square). He also brings up the point that multi tenancy isn’t just “at the database level”, you could have a multi-tenant database, or single-tenant databases with a shared multi-tenant app server.
