one very often and some others regularly to sometimes. I do not expect more than ten, for each model stored. However data will be persistent and reused

A model could consist of 1-2 million rows today (As computer power increases, this increases too). But there are many such tables to a model, since many versions must be kept.

Very little.

4-16 clients may write concurrently but not in the same tables all the time

Quite right. These are the options I am considering.
