If this system is only being used for BusBoss school bus routing software, you do not need to purchase a “server” machine for your server. Servers typically have RAID array drivers with multiple processors (etc.) for a “BusBoss Server.” A high-end workstation machine will suffice.
If you intend to use the BusBoss Server for other applications, it is recommended that you purchase a typical server machine.
BusBoss bus routing software comes with SQL Express (free of charge) for storing your data. SQL Express is a desktop version of SQL Server that may be used when there are less than five concurrent users. We highly recommend purchasing Microsoft SQL Server to store the data.
BusBoss bus routing software now has a real-time bus tracking solution. If you intend to purchase this system in the future, it is recommended that you purchase a typical server machine. With the real-time tracking product, much more disk access is required and therefore a faster hard drive would be recommended.

The monitors on the workstations should be as large as possible to maximize viewing the map and routes for efficient routing capabilities.
