    That's the plan: nightly backup of primary PBX and restore to secondary PBX coupled with hourly (or more often) rsync sessions from the primary during the day to sync up voicemails. The secondary server is always on line.

    I would suggest rsync'ing all of the /var/spool/asterisk/ directory to catch recordings also , if using avantfax , then also the appropriate hylafax and avantfax directories, mysql dumping and restoring the avantfax database also helps.

    Personally I use rsnapshot , which uses rsync and space-saving hardlinks, I can effectively do all the above at convenient times , especially if using a third off-site location as a point of arbitration between both systems. The off-line will restore the rsnapshots off the on-line one. I just script the restore from the on-line one if off-line. Kind of like an asynchronous drdb/glusterfs without the headaches of a "splitting ;-)"-headache.

    Also there is a series of restore points available for either machines if anything goes south. Just set the rsnapshot cronjobs with a reasonable offset between the two devices, and exclude "tmp" files from the rsnapshotting

    We've now tested DCNHost VPS $11.99.yr offering. Similar performance (i.e. lousy) to SparkVPS. Typical 15 minute OpenVZ install is now past the one-hour mark and it's less than half finished.

    Also no vswap enabled. Might wanna skip this one, too.

    The adventure continues...
    Code:
    We've attempted to use your OpenVZ platform. However, the performance simply isn't adequate for our needs. Compared to other LowEndBox offerings for comparable OpenVZ platforms, we're observing about 20% or less of the typical performance metrics. An install of our platform that typically take 20 minutes has already passed the one hour mark and is less than half finished. Thought you would want to know. Sorry for the disappointing news.

    Hello,
    
    We recommend you to switch to KVM server which have dedicated resources and which can provide you better performance than the openvz server.

    Hi,
    
    If you wish to use the KVM server means I can give you a one month free on it. So, please confirm with the KVM plan which you need and I will give one month free on that.

    4x 3.40 GHz CPU Cores
    70 GB HDD Storage (RAID-10 Protected)
    4 GB Dedicated RAM
    5000 GB Monthly Bandwidth
    1000Mbps Network Uplink

    Are they serious? OpenVZ uses less resources overall, thus provides better performance results. If you get performance issues it is because they are putting too many customers on the server.

    Oh thanks. Those are some good results on some. Some places will say 1GB port, but then have a caveat about 100MB speeds
