Cisco routers are generally better for site to site VPN, but in my
experience the VPN 3000 Concentrator is really nice as well...
It is really hard to beat when it comes to regular remote access

With a VPN 3000 Concentrator you can do some really nifty
stuff with policy routing on the LAN behind the concentrator to
ensure that the different customers are separated.

Thank you Dana, if not using PIX, what Cisco device is better for the site
to site VPN, router or concentrator? Can all customers share a same IP
address pool?

Since you have to use access-lists as part of the VPN configuration to define all the hosts and/or networks at each end of each tunnel, if you configure all the VPN tunnels with the database server as the only local host, then it will do what you want.  The PIX should be fine for this, assuming you don't otherwise exceed its VPN capacity.
