Multitenancy and the options to realise it in rails4

Ok the situation is that I have an App, where to user can sign in and
can
use the app save some data like customers and orders to the db.
Since I’m using devise for authentication, I realised the multitenenacy
with current_user in the controller. So every user has his own data.

like

def index
@customers = current_user.customers
end

etc

This works fine right now. But yesterday I watched some railscast.
http://railscasts.com/episodes/389-multitenancy-with-postgresql
http://railscasts.com/episodes/388-multitenancy-with-scopes

As you can see the first one uses pg schemas and the second one works
with
scopes. Both have the same effect like my way. But what could be the
advantages or disadvantages to these 3 ways? Dont want to build further
on
my app and realise in the end that I picked the wrong way. Maybe in the
end
of the app there will be a function user can team up and have shared
data… but this is just a nice to have.

Any experince, hints or suggestion on that?

best regards

Best suggestion here I can make is pick up Radar’s book:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18333875-multitenancy-with-rails

really a great read, very helpful in this.

Yeah I already found this, but I dont want to digg a complete book about
this topic, a kind of summary or a discussion about it would be nice.
