Running multiple IP’s and programs on one server
Hello everyone. I am a fairly green electrical engineer with little experience in IT and networking. At my job we have a support rack that houses 4 Windows servers and a few power supplies. The purpose of this rack is to acquire data from various instrumentation, command & control of various components through a LabVIEW GUI, output instrumentation values to a GUI, and control the power supplies. Each of the 4 servers contains a LabVIEW program on them to perform these functions. The programs are not extremely complex in nature.
We need to build another one of these racks but the person who designed them is no longer here. The servers are $1500 each so I am wondering how difficult it would be to have all of these programs running from one server, each partitioned with it’s own IP address.
I feel like this might be a very vague question within the realm of IT and networking, and for that I apologize. But any advice or direction from the experts would be appreciated. Thank you.
