Force.com is a cloud computing platform as a service system from Salesforce.com,[1] that developers use to build multitenant applications hosted on their servers as a service.[2]

According to a September, 2009 Gartner Group report,[3] Force.com had over 1,000 customer accounts, in addition to tens of thousands that used Force.com in conjunction with Salesforce.com. Force.com uses eight data centers, with each customer fully contained in a single data center that is replicated for availability.[citation needed]

Several criticisms of force.com's integrated development environment and developer friendliness have been made,[citation needed] including lack of support for multiple developers, speed problems with developing on the cloud, and a failure to properly separate Salesforce.com from Force.com. The platform has been described[by whom?] as having potential but currently only appropriate for Salesforce.com customers who want to extend Salesforce, not for independent developers who want to use Force.com as a standalone platform.
