Is it possible to share one DB server = OS among these three products?
Is it possible to share one DB instance among these three products? Is there any consideration or limitation? (for example,  allocated memory)

My customer needs to use RELM integrated with RAM and RTC. They do not use SCM feature of RTC. Also they want to minimize the number of servers which they have to manage.

Thank you in advance.

The short answer is yes, but in the end it comes down to how big your servers will need to be.

If you have a nice big DB server then you can absolutely create all the databases on the one system. Likewise if your application server is big enough you can put all the apps on one app server as well. The issue will be when you are using them all at once - for a small organisation with a smallish dataset you may manage ok, but complex interlinking of data in RELM can generate a lot of computations and database fetches and you may find yourself in trouble.

The best part though is that as long as you set up appropriate server names for each component you can move them to separate servers as you scale up.

Yes you can have one server and DB instance, but multiple databases. We do that internally. They must be separate databases. That way as you grow you easily offload a database to a different server instance.

Thanks a lot ! :-)
