*Note that SpiraTeam®can be loaded onto either Windows Server or Workstation editions, provided that the IIS web-server is installed and that either SQL Server or MSDE is available as a database engine. However Windows Vista and Windows XP Professional can only support a maximum of five (5) concurrent user web sessions. In general unless there are only going to be a couple of client machines hitting the server, we recommend using a Windows Server (preferably Windows Server 2008).
