Questions on the usage of Alfresco object 'site'?

I am new to Alfresco. Following are the things that I am working on: Alfresco 5.0.d community edition, Java CMIS API
In CMIS, I find object like folder, document, relationships, etc. I could not find anything like "site".

Now, we would like to use Alfresco as a default document repository for our j2ee application.

There could be scenarios where some of our clients might have two instances of our application running with different data, but both of them want to use the same Alfresco server.

Our application would always use a single "alfresco user" to access Alfresco. This will be stored either in our configuration file or in our database.

With this, I am trying to come up with a strategy to organize/store our documents in Alfresco.

With my amateur knowledge, I find more than one options:
- default repository, no "sites", but a (top-level) folder for each application instance, then so on
- default repository, a "site" for each application instance, etc.
- a repository for each application instance, no "sites", etc.

Please share your recommendations for me.
