Whenever I look at "Should I use Multi-site?", it always seems to depend on the use case. (I am using Drupal 7)
I have been developing a company's Intranet on a single Drupal install and it is getting larger and larger.
I have about 75 Content Types and over 500 fields.
The reason for the Drupal site having so many Content Types is to give each department access to manage nodes within specific content types. (Using Content Access).
There are also additional Content Types for workflows that are using with Rules.
I feel the greatest performance hit when managing fields on a Content Type. Other than that, the site still runs smoothly.
In a situation like this where there are going to be so many more fields and content types added, does it make sense to use Multi-site instead? Or is it perhaps the specs of my Server that are causing the slowness?
It is convenient having everything on one site since I can have a unified Dashboard, not have to re-make the User groups/roles on multiple sites, etc.
In this use case, is it worth converting my structure to a Multi-site setup?
