Database servers exist to run database server software. Database servers should not also run web server software, act as a file server, or run other workloads.
Understand workload and data isolation requirements before server deployment. Isolation requirements are often defined through business requirements, including:
Data and application security requirements that trigger isolation of one workload from other workloads.
Separation of Development and Testing environments from Production environments.
Understand control requirements before server deployment, including records of control implementation needed to support audits.
Control requirements typically follow data:
Both production and non-production systems may require production-level controls based on the presence of data subject to control.
Database servers, backup servers, and other systems may require production-level controls based on the presence of data subject to control.
