Best practice - same server or dedicated for Deploy/Inventory

Is there a recommended/best practice around putting Deploy and Inventory on the same server vs using a dedicated server for each, or does it not matter at all?

  • Definitely recommended to have both installed on the same machine. This way they can communicate with (and compliment) each other. On the same machine you can have PDQ Deploy target PDQ Inventory collections or have Inventory keep track of deployments at the computer level. When they exist on separate machines they are effectively just stand alone applications that don't interface with each other.

  • Thanks for the quick response, Shane!

  • Shane,


    Are there any future plans to be able to run each service on separate servers and connect to the same database?
