Correct multitenancy design

Hello!

I wonder what would be the correct way do design a multi-tenant system for hundreds (maybe thousands) of customers. As far as I can see there are two ways:

1. Have customer_id in every table. Add "WHERE customer_id=..." to every query.
2. Have multiple schemas - one per customer.

What would be advantages and pitfalls of these methods?

Thanks!
Michael
