The CASSIE System is a distributed software system consisting of smart client components (called the User Stations) and a highly optimized nerve center component (called the Manager).

The User Station is installed on all public access and staff computers that will be part of the CASSIE System.

One Manager must be installed within your CASSIE System. It does not require a dedicated server. It will run well on a modestly equipped computer, but it can also take advantage of multiple processors, if present. The Manager runs as a background process and has no user interface; all interaction with the System occurs through the User Stations.

The Manager and User Station applications can co-exist on the same computer.

User Station Application Requirements

5 MB free RAM
10 MB hard drive space
Display resolution of 800x600 or better
Network adapter

Running one of the following operating systems:

Windows Server 2016
Windows Server 2012 (including R2)
Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows 8.0/8.1 Pro or Enterprise (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows Server 2008 (All 32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64" Editions, including R2)
Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows Vista Business, Enterprise or Ultimate (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows Server 2003 (All 32-bit "x86" Editions, including R2)
Windows XP Professional (32-bit "x86")
Thin clients served by Windows 2003/2008/2012/2016 Terminal Services
Thin/zero clients served by Windows Multipoint Server 2011/2012/2016
Mac OS X 10.9,10.10, 10.11, 10.12 or 10.13

Manager Application Requirements

32 MB free RAM
Typically 250 MB hard drive space (see note below)
Network adapter

Running one of the following operating systems:

Windows Server 2016
Windows Server 2012 (including R2)
Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows 8.0/8.1 Pro or Enterprise (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows Server 2008 (All 32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64" Editions, including R2)
Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows Vista Business, Enterprise or Ultimate (32-bit "x86" or 64-bit "x64")
Windows Server 2003 (All 32-bit "x86" Editions, including R2)
Windows XP Professional (32-bit "x86")

Note: The CASSIE Manager hard drive space usage is largely a function of the size of the user/accounting database. An approximate calculation is 550 bytes per used record, so a database with 50,000 user records will require about 26 MB on the hard drive. Optional database backup images will require additional space.

Web Reservation Module Requirements

Network adapter

No existing operating system is necessary

SPOT will transform this computer into a high performance network appliance with a web-based administration console, similar to familiar hardware-based network appliances. Use of SPOT requires an existing CASSIE System.
