Cascade Application server vs database server.

Hey there,
  It's been years since I did the initial configuration for the Cascade application server, and I apologize for not remembering this. Our current setup has the cascade application and Tomcat server installed on the same box as the ms sql server 2005 server. We are looking at moving to 7.14.2 so that we can upgrade java to 8 (for security reasons), but we see that past 7.12.4 you no longer support sql server 2005.

The point is, we have dedicated 2008 and 2012 sql servers, but we do not install applications on them. I want to know if we can have the application where it is, but use a different server for the database. I'd also like to know if that will have a significant impact.

Thank you,

    Hi Bill,

    You can point your Cascade instance to a database that is on a different server by modifying your Tomcat configuration.

    I'd also like to know if that will have a significant impact.

    Running Cascade on a separate server than the database is actually recommended because resource contention could potentially have a negative impact on performance. That is, separating the two would allow you to allocate more resources to Cascade. The only potential negative impact could be network latency, but that is generally minimal.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
