Looking at the network placement of my SQL Servers. Looking for answers:
Is it a best practice to have all SQL Servers in 1 or 2 VLANs within your businesses network? however, if so, wont there potentially be performance issues on the NICs that manage that VLAN because there are so many SQL Servers in one VLAN?
Also on firewalls between the SQL Servers & application servers - this is not recommended right, As there will be a bottleneck from the firewall?
So going from the above comment, is it simply best practice to have the SQL servers in the same VLANs as the application servers that interact with the databases?
