I agree on most points but fail to see why multi tenacny is an absolute must. As long as we have a single code vendor how many customer per hardware box they run should be really uninteresting. As a customer you buy a service and as long as it gets delivered over the internet you really dont care what is on the other side. You care about functionality, performance and easy upgrades that just works. If the vendor runs it on Linux, Windows or something else is uninteresting for you and so should the configuration of the hardware be. It's up to the vendor to make its profit, and if they can't do it they are in trouble, not you.
