OpenClinica on Windows Server 2008?

Hello,
We have set up a test version of OpenClinica on CentOS, but we are interested in setting up a system for production use. We have more staff familiar with Windows and more resources geared towards Windows. We would like to use Windows Server 2008 as the base OS. Does anyone have any experience with the community edition of OpenClinica on Windows Server 2008? Does that combination have any caveats?
Thanks for any advice anyone might have!

    Hello Joan,
    OC works fine under Windows server 2008, but make sure you adjust memory settings for java in tomcat, as explained in the installation manual. If those settings are not done properly, memory problems occur.
    Succes, Cuneyt.

    We have been running OC 3.1.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bits (intel Xeon 2 CPU Cuad Core, 16 GB) form more than 2 years now as test and production enviroment (two instances) with the only issues of "memory leaks" on jdbc objects reported by tomcat on server shutdown. Do this issues have to do the settings mentioned?

    Agree 100% with Cuneyt. If you follow the install instruction to the letter you won’t have any problems in Win 2008 at all. The only problem we had were with the auditors who said that we were not following the install instruction when we installed OC on Win 2008 R2 and not 2003 as recommended by OC. When will you but the modern operating systems on your list of supported systems?

    Best regards
