Despite its power, AccuSQL only has very minimum hardware requirements. Almost any computer running a Microsoft Operating Systems from Windows XP or later can run AccuTrack. For optimum performance, we recommend at least the following:
To run AccuSQL, you will need a license for Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008/2012/2014/2016 (express/standard/enterprise). Then you'll need a DBA (Database Administartor) to setup the SQL Server instance as outline in Microsoft's guides:
The AccuSQL database is then transferred (with help from AccuTrack Support) and hosted on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or later onsite at your organization. Some additional recommended tasks for the DBA would be:
If you plan to use the Computer Lab Plug-in software with AccuSQL, your network needs to support the extra connections needed for the Plug-in. For example, if you have a computer lab with 25 computers and you run the Plug-in on each computer, and you have 5 administration stations, your network needs to support 30 simultaneous connections to the database. Since Windows 2000 Pro and XP Pro only support up to 10 simultaneous connections to the database, you will need an operating system like Windows 2000 Server, XP Server, 2003 Server, etc. to host the database.
Web Gateway MVC, the module to add Web-based appointment scheduling and seminar registrations, requires a Windows operating system running IIS 7. On AccuSQL installations, you can host the MSSQL Server database on the same server as the one running IIS 7, or the database can be hosted on a different server.
If you have a Mac lab, we recommend you acquire a PC for running AccuSQL. Another option is to use Accudemia, our cloud-based software that runs on your web browser.
