Can we have on prem Computer vision and Orchestrator on the same server?

Can we have on prem Computer vision and Orchestrator on the same server ?

Technically you can, but highly non-recommended, unless for testing or other non-production scenarios.

Thank you. That means we need to have dedicated server for on prem CV server right ? Any reason why we can’t have both in the same server ?

This is an infrastructure best-practice.
In short: isolation
Examples: with separate servers for Orchestrator and CV

  • A spike in processing of the CV server will not affect Orchestrator’s critical performance
  • Maintenance work (e.g. upgrade needing a reboot) of the CV server will not affect Orchestrator’s operation

Overall, we consider Orchestrator a highly critical component. As such, the rule of thumb is to isolate and protect its availability as much as possible.
Of course, each deployment is different and you may choose to configure it whichever way you see fit.
