Default Creating New Database


I have two different small applications that needs to worked on. I am not sure should i just create one database for both of these or create a separate database for each of them. would you guys advise on what's the advantage and disadvantage of both?

Depends. Are the two applications related? Even if they are, I would still create separate databases. A little more maintenance but well worth it in the long term from a DBA persective and data perspective.

For example, if data is corrupted for one application, it doesn't affect the other data.

Hope this helps...

how does the server performance get affected if you have multiple databases v. few databases within the same SQL Server.
