    Why put ORION app on different server than SQL server

    MrSampsonite

      Right now our ORION app is installed on the same server that's hosting the DB. It's our trial period. I see recommendations everywhere to separate the two. However I still have not seen a concise technical answer for why this recommended? If I put the app on a different server and go to the site, that site then passes the request to the db server, gets the results and renders them. Why is this better than not passing that request and response and just having everything on one server? There's an added cost to having another server (hardward/vm, licensing, etc)?

       

      For that matter, if I have 5 people with orion accounts, do I need 5 SQL CALs? Or just 1 since the app is the only thing that connects to SQL?

       

      Thanks!
