JIRA Core and JIRA Software on same machine?

I have to install the Server (on-prem) edition of both tools: JIRA Core and JIRA Software.

Would you recommend to place them on the same virtual machine (Windows or Linux)? Or separate to 2 diffrent machines?

Who better to answer that than yourself? The list of pros an cons are very long, but here is a few.. 

Why dont put both core and software inside the same JIRA?

1 server: Less server setup. Database, proxy servers, certificates, backup, etc.

2 servers: Ability to take down just one server for maintenance. More server setup..


Agreed  - the whole point of JIRA Software is that it adds to a JIRA Core system, not runs another separate copy alongside it.
