    Hi All

    We planning to setup UAT and production setup for one of our project.

    We planning to have UAT application(.NET) and Production(.NET) application in a single server withtwo different virtual directories.

    Database for both application will be in two different server privte zone,application will be in public Zone.

    Is it advisable to have UAT and Production application in same server.

    Is there any contraint need to face in future.

     Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    It depends on your situation. Theoretically yes you can have two directories.

    However it depends on lot of factors viz users, security, type of application.

    It will be nice to have Test and production environment different. VM wares is also good option.  If you want to bench mark your application then I believe separate environment is best option. In short you need to analysis the factors and then decide.

    Ideally you would have (2) servers or (2) virtual servers (whatever the setup your environment uses) that are identical in setup but are separate in their use; one should be a test server, and one should be a production server (at a minimum; some scenarios have several stages before production).

    Think about deploying a new application to test with a new technology like Silverlight or some 3rd party installed software.  In order to test your application, you have to go ahead and install that software on your 'single' production & test server.  What happens if that software causes the server to freeze, or makes the production applications all of the sudden have issues?  Now your production sites are down and that is no good.  It would have been better if you could test deploying this 'new' software to a test server first to make sure it works as expected, and does not cause any issues.  If you have do everything on a single server, you could be placing your production applications at risk, while you are deploying and installing 'untested' software on the same server.

    Hope this helps! Smile
