Database and Web Server on the same machine?

Just a thought of having separate servers for database and web landed me on the following links:

My catch:

Single Server

Pros:  Performance gain, less latency time

Cons:  Vulnerable

Separate servers  

Pros:  Security advantage, scalability

Cons: Expense on extra hardware

More on this soon!

Welcome to dbpost !

Oracle database related posts appear in my blog as I meet new tasks and issues as a DBA.  Its only an effort to document my work log  in simple words,  as I go adventurous on Oracle databases and related technologies.

All posts are written based on different articles, books, discussions and more on web. And in almost posts,  I had tried enough to provide source/reference links.

Please don’t try these solutions directly on production database based on any of my post,  give a  shot in your test environment initially..!
