The server where the Starfish ETL™ Engine will be installed must have IIS and ASP.NET installed. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 is required. For the installation package to function properly on some later operating systems, "IIS 6 Management Compatibility" may also need to be installed.
Any recent versions of Windows XP or newer are supported. If your company supports virtual machines, they can create a basic Windows machine and Starfish ETL™ can be setup on it. Internally, we use virtual machines with a 3 GHZ CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 25 GB hard drive for development. Starfish ETL™ does support multiple cores and multi-threading so having multiple cores can help with performance.
