The Force.com Multitenant Architecture


Salesforce.com’s platform landscape is ever-growing, and I’m sure that many of you have often wondered how the heck they’ve devised an architecture capable of supporting it all. You might be surprised to know that this (perhaps slightly out-of-date e.g. the document states 47k+ orgs) information is available in the form of a whitepaper on the Developerforce website!

It is a heavy read but at 15-pages long it won’t take too long, and for anyone using the platform day-in-day-out it’ll give you a new-found appreciation for the tools you use.
