We have sharepoint 2019 on-prem environment with SQL server and 4 front end server with min-role architecture.
We also have our inhouse application environment with SQL server and a front-end server for any advanced .NET applications.
So, we are I the process of upgrading our .NET application environment and considering the following options. Not sure if they are recommended by Microsoft.
1. Create a new instance of the sharepoint 2019 SQL server and use it for the .NET application database.
2. Use one of the front-end servers for hosting .NET applications.
Is it okay to use sharepoint servers for other use by creating new instances of those servers? or those servers should be dedicated to sharepoint databases/applications?
