How many VM boxes will astrisk comfortably support


#1

I am an ISP with over 10,000 email boxes and we are about to deploy VOIP using a taqua switch with a SIP interface.

One of the ( many ) components we are lacking is voicemail. I would like to start with 500 boxes, move up to over 1000 boxes within 3 months and 5000 within 2 years.

Can astrisk support 500 to 5000 email boxes ?

We also need a feature server but i refuse to pay $300k for vocal data.

Any information would be apperciated.

for voicemail it is more how big is the hard drive and concurrent users and how are the connecting.

I’ve worked on a setup with a simple single proc server with 100 GB hard drive that had about 7,500 mailboxes on it.
