Create Multi Tenancy in Windows Server 2012 R2

We are building an environment consisting of 1 Primary Domain Controller Server 2012 R2, 3 Hyper V Host nodes, and 5 VM's consisting of a backup domain controller and all the Remote Desktop Service Roles spread across the rest of the vms.

We are wanting to add multiple companies to this environment and publish various applications to different users/companies.

We are probably going to have some questions at various stages along the way, but the very first question we have is how should we setup active directory for this type of scenario to ensure that we can share these resources while maintaining separation between organizations?  Should each company have it's own forest?

good thought.  That sound like exactly what I need. I have never used that before.  How complex is the deployment?  are there any good resources showing step by step?  Have you used that for hosting apps for multiple clients?  Any additional configurations to think about in addition to that azure pack?

The Windows Azure Pack site is full of good instructions. Azure is actually one area where Microsoft's documentation shines.
