Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Below are common questions about the GOSH System. Feel free to review..
What is the minimum hardware requirement to run gosh?
Dual core processor 2Ghz or faster, 4GB of memory, 80GB hard drive
What is the recommended hardware requirement to run gosh?
Single quad core processor with two threads per core running at 2.7Ghz or faster, 8GB of memory, 200GB RAID10
What software is required?
You can run the GOSH system on a Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8 Professional desktop operating system for low user usage in a test/demo environment. For production purposes, we recommend running GOSH on Windows 2008 R2 Web Server Edition or Windows 2012 Server Standard Edition operating system. The IIS web server role will need to be implemented and the Microsoft .NET 4.0 framework installed. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 or 2012 Express Edition will be installed during the installation process along with Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 or 2012. You will need to purchase a Windows Server operating system and at least a 5 user GOSH System license. All other software is free from Microsoft.
Can I run the software on a virtual server?
Yes. GOSH runs fine using Microsoft's hyper-v technology.
Can I run multiple businesses or Boards on one server?
Yes. Each Board or business would have its own SQL Server instance and its own website. Consider using at least a single quad core processor with two threads per core running at 2.7Ghz or faster, 16GB of memory, and a 300GB RAID10 partition.
Do I need to purchase any Microsoft Windows server CALs?
As long as the server operating system is only running the GOSH System and SQL Server Express is used on the server, no additional Microsoft server CALs are required. No CALs are required to run Web Workload (Internet Web Solutions) on Windows 2008 R2 Web Server Edition or Windows 2012 Server Standard Edition. See page 26 of the Microsoft Product Use Rights document and page 168 of the attached Microsoft Product List. If other server roles are installed, then Microsoft Server CALs are required. Installing any other higher edition of Microsoft SQL Server will require a Microsoft SQL Server per processor license and a Windows External Connector License.
