Hello. I’m relatively new to the community. Having built a few test systems using various distros (elastix, freepbx, trixbox, ect) I’m about to build a system for a production environment with about 30 users (5 off site), 12 paths. I will run 5 Auto-attendants and 2 or 3 ques. I’ve selected Polycom 331’s with a few 550’s and a 650+ side car thrown in.
I’m probably going with Gafachi for my trunks. In testing I’ve had GREAT results and they are really eager to lend a helping hand.
So i wanted some guru’s to weigh in with their recommendations.
Firstly, What CURRENT distro would you use in a production environment? Elastix? FreePBX? Asterisk now? (and with which gui)
To me, Elastix looks great, but has too many “features” that could slow down the server and present security holes. FreePBX 2.10 looks promising, but who knows when it will be finished.
Hardware. I’m probably ordering a Dell r310 or R410 for the server. I’m thinking Xeon® X3450, 2.66 GHz Processor and 8 GB of Ram. Sound sufficient for G711? Any noticeable performance benefits of Raid 10 over Raid 1?
Thanks in advance… and i look forward to learning alot! :mrgreen:
