    This: bad! (I think... maybe I'm too used to SIMS, but something about this gives me that 'do not want' feeling. I'm guessing there will be SQL server clustering going on, etc?)

    In terms of the physical database yes there will be for performance and redundancy.

    From a user perspective it is one database carefully controlled so each school only sees information pertinent to them. This is how Aspen works in a multi tenancy scenario, or groups of schools and trust groups, districts or provinces and beyond.

    To be honest, now I re-read it all, I'm not sure. There's no reason why it should pose problems if done right (which I have absolutely no doubt it will be) - I suppose I've just seen so many drunken-monkey DB desings that my brain conflated 'one massive database' with 'one massive table' or other WTFs on instinct.

    If you need techs in Canada, I'd move there.
