Handling Multiple Tenants/Instances

Finally have some time to play with Octopus this coming weekend (yay) and thought I'd check something first.

I have an ASP.NET web application where:
- all core libraries/dlls are versioned and centralized in the GAC - each tenant (client) gets its own virtual directory - each tenant has its own physical directory - physical directory contents are the same for all tenants (per version), with the exception of web.config

So what I need to take into consideration what version a given client is on when deploying., I also need to take into consideration whether the core libraries for that version have been deployed or not.

So before i get going I guess my question is -- do you think Octopus is suitable for this type of setup or am i swimming against the current here?

    Hi Sean,

    I think the GAC issue can be solved by checking to see if the component is already registered using a PowerShell script, so that part shouldn't be a problem.

    The virtual directory part is a problem however. It seems a lot of people would find virtual directories useful, so I'm thinking hard about a nice way to support them. I'll keep you up to date on that.
