Description

Overview


What are the pros and consĀ of hosting multiple MID servers on same single physical machine?

Subject


When we have a single physical server to host multiple MID servers, we always wonder what are the pros and cons with this approach:

Pros
  • Convenience, since they are all located on the same host machine (easy access/easy to manage).
  • Don't need to set up too many ACL rules.
Cons
  • Need a powerful host machine (host machine need to have sufficient resource for each of MID server).
  • Only available on the specific subnet where it resides on.
  • When the host machine is down, it will cause all MID servers to be down at once.
