SonarQube Server & Database Server on same host

Excuse the silly question, I assume the answer is obvious, but I haven’t been able to find it on the forums or guides.

What is the rationale behind having SonarQube & its database server on two different hosts?
Is this a performance consideration?

I’m looking at deploying on Azure, perhaps AWS and wondering why this recommendation.

Also while I’m at it are there any recommendations on disk size recommendations?

one word answer: scalability

In addition to that, it’s considered best practice to host DBs on managed cloud systems such as AWS RDS that have built in automated backup and restore systems. This isn’t to say that you can’t run both on 1 machine, but most people chose not to for a variety of reasons related to industry best practices.

That’s great and indeed makes sense.
Thanks for the quick reply too :slightly_smiling_face:
