    Upgrading from v4 to v5 for us cost us nothing at all. So, I don't see where she's getting that £1200 from!

    No, its hosted in house, and we did the upgrade ourselves, as they provide the instructions too.

    I recently upgraded to 3.5 (I think) but was told that our server would need a minimum of 4gb of RAM and that 3gb wouldn't suffice even though we only have a collection size of 10,000 and 1000 students!!

    I have it running spread across 2 servers, 1 as the application server and 1 as the SQL server. We only use SQL Express, so the database server only has 2GB RAM assigned to it, and it uses its full 1GB RAM for the SQL edition (ie. the limit for SQL Express). Reporting services then uses another couple of hundred MB. The Application server uses about 2GB total.

    So, overall, for our site with 600 users and about 10k books, we use about 3.5GB when idle, so 3GB would be a little on the small size now, especially if you ever have more than 1 person using it - as the above stats are for it just sitting and doing nothing. When in use, the RAM useage on the App server can double.

    4GB RAM is not expensive though any more, so I didn't see it as a problem.

    How difficult would it be to move from Alice to Oliver?

    So probably not wise to have it on our PDC then...where it currently just chugs away with no hassles whatsoever...

    New server it is then?
