I been using GSA SER for about 2 months now and have about 30 projects running.
I also use Kontent Solution which allows me to export up to 50 GSA SER data files which i can then import into GSA SER.
Unfortunately the Kontent Solution files could be huge especially if it was build on 3 keywords == This obviously mean it needs quite a bit of memory to load those projects -- as such i am unable to start all projects at the same time as i will get Out of memory message, since GSA SER only use i think 3GB RAM at most since it is based on 32bit.
So in order for me to expand my business and add more projects to GSA SER i would need to buy several copies of it and run it on different machine. This is going to work out a little costly, since i would then also need several copies of CB ( Unless i have all machines in the same network and use CB as webserver in my LAN --- I think).
All of the above about extra machines, extra copies of GSA SER could be avoided if the program had a 64bit version, because then i can make full use of the available 32 GB Ram on my 64bit machine - by having only 1 GSA SER copy running with 100's of projects.
I have seen all of @sven
's arguments about he prefer to have an optimized 32bit code and there is no need for 64bit ---blah blah blah
I am now however wondering if @sven
's reluctance to release a 64bit version is not financially based, because if there is a 64bit version then power users would not need to buy so many copies of the 32bit version -- as such he make more money by not releasing a 64bit version.
If the above is the case then it really sucks. I believe GSA SER has come a long way and it has many other products plugging into it like Kontent Machine and WAC and some others, this is resulting in bigger projects which needs more RAM and being stuck with 3GB is causing a bad experience for many power users.
I for one would be willing to pay more to get a 64bit version, be it a upgrade fee or having to buy the new 64bit version at double the price.
Not trying to stir up a fight with Sven, but thought i will voice ( type ) my thoughts on this
