"Please note: In a productive environment it is recommended to deploy the server and the user interface into two different servlet containers running on dedicated machines."

Does this mean that the server and client .war should be loaded onto seperate machines?

Hi Dan

In a productive environment you probably have different protection needs for your server. E.g. only expose the UI server to the users and have the backend server in a zone that is better protected from direct access. Some setups require to place a firewall between the UI server and the backend server to protect the backend server from direct access.

There are also availability and performance reasons to take into account. Depending on the numbers of users and your requirements it may be necessary to setup clusters having multiple UI Servers and/or backend servers. And the tiers may have different requirements on HW resources.

So technically you can easily run both web application on one machine. But often the requirements on a production environment prohibit such a setup. Then you need to install the two applications on different machines. But this is up to you.

Hope this helps.

Begin with one machine if no security reasons prevent this. We use it on one machine without problems.

Scout UI consumes more memory than Scout Backend, so it is a nice feature that it can be distributed to other servers if needed. But there is no technical obligation to do so.
