Can someone explain advantages of multi-server vs single server installation, particularly as it relates to a SaaS model and client scalability and points of failure. If I have to have 5 appliances in the multi-server there is no redundancy in place and a single appliance failure affects all customers, vs. if I have 5 single server installations a single failure affects 20% of my customers. What does a multi-server model get me for its complexity that scaling server installations doesn't get me?

Interesting question. I've been thinking about this as well, as it would apply to my company with three sites. The immediate advantage is that I can place each user's mail store on a 'local' server, and thus gain some performance over having e-mail travel the WAN. All users have to connect first to the primary server, so there is a single point of failure. Of course, this is a technology preview, so many things can and are likely to change.
