Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have db and website on same server. I would like to know that what would be the pros and cons of dedicated server for db (SQL Server 2005) and for website (webserver is IIS).

Same db is also connected with a windows application. Will there be any difference in speed by transferring db to a dedicated server?

Thanks.

Running SQL Server on a dedicated server is always recommended. In a shared server where you have SQL Server and other applications running, there will always be contention for the resources.
