We have a dedicated server that contains 3 virtual server with iis 7.5 on it. There are 50 real ip addresses pointing to the server, with some of them assigned to the virtual servers.
I wasn’t sure how to setup, especially where to install the database servers like mysql, mssql server. No I am concerned about performance. Every virtual server has its own local database server. This means 3 mysql server and 3 mssql server in total.
So I thought that if I create a new virtual server dedicated to run these database servers, does the websites face any performance lack according to the local setup? In brief, should I spare a new virtual server purely as database server or should all virtual servers have their own local database?
If you are concerned about performance, stop shooting your performance.
- Make a dedicated VM for databases.
- Provide plenty of IO budget – separate disks for the database server. That is disks as plural – I have one database server running on a VM shared image with 8 disks and 2 ssd just for the data – because I need it.
- 2 dedicated servers, one for the database server, and the other for webserver?
