What is a good low-power cpu to run asterisk on? The system I’m setting up will only handle maybe 5 calls maximum, maybe a few more in the future using the G.711 codec.
I also need to build a backup server running Linux HA in another location that will not do anything except activate Asterisk if the main server goes down (due to a power or internet outage). The backup server’s configuration file will tell all calls to be forwarded to a cell phone.
I found this page that lists several processors, and this page that has a setup that looks like it might work, but it seems the AMD Geode is an embedded processor, and I wasn’t sure if this would work for trixbox?
I’m fairly new to processors and motherboards, so I’m thinking I should stay away from embedded processors for now, and maybe just go with a ultra low power mobile processor in a desktop motherboard? Can I do this? Our setup is entirely VoIP and has no Digium FXO or FXS cards. Price is a factor too, I’d like to keep the box as cheap as possible.
