SBS 2003 Premium - 2 servers.

  ventanas 11:02 08 Jul 2009

I've seen it recommended that SQL 2008 is run separately from a second server, and not installed with the other applications.
Just wondered if anyone could advise if there was any real advantage to this. I can see that it will mean a reduced load on the main server, and keep it's own rescources free. But it will increase the cost of what is alread a quite expensive excercise.
Grateful for any advice.
