Should the Central Instance be separated from the DB Server?


I am planning for a distributed ECC system. I plan to have multiple Dialog Instances. I am trying to determine whether or not I want to install the Central Instance on the same system as the Database. I am using a virtualized environment, so I am not concerned with the network between the two systems. I have been told by my VAR that it is recommended to separate the DB server and the CI but I don't see why. Knowing that the CI talks directly to the DB, why wouldn't you want to keep them together? I am adding this post to find out what others are doing and what they recommend.
