We are consultant organization working with Government of India on one of the agricultural projects and wants to use Survey Solutions to collect data from farmers. We have earlier used the Survey Solutions for WB funded & local government projects. We are very comfortable to design the questionnaire and familiar with the system. The Survey Solution is very well designed compared to other CAPI solutions available in the market.
Recently we learnt that the cloud server support for non WB projects is discontinued & we have to arrange for own server or hire cloud server. This is very new and complicated thing for us as we are not from IT background.
I have gone through Server Installation Process (for both local & cloud servers like AWS), but frankly it is very difficult to understand the technicalities involved.
Could you please help us to deploy a server named https://tpecsb20.mysurvey.solutions on any cloud server. We are ready to pay the charges required. We just need technical support. Once we go through this process we will be able to do it on our own for the future surveys.
Else, we have to go for any other CAPI solutions but in that case the learning curve would be steep and we have to start from the scratch e.g. understanding the questionnaire designing, server request, survey execution & data download process I.e. in shot everything would have to be learnt first and then use it in actual survey.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. We tried to deploy local server by installing Windows Server 2019 evaluation edition in VirtualBox and then installing Survey Solutions & PostgreSQL. But the settings and other things are too complicated to understand for Food & Agribusiness Professional like me.
