Our personal favorite for high-end KVM platforms is SSDnodes. Terrific special ends today. $99/year gets you 24GB RAM, 240GB SSD, 4 CPUs, and 12TB transfer/mo. No backup option so we use two in different locations with rsync.
What do you use a 24GB machine for? I could see using the 240GB SSD for maybe keeping recordings for multiple servers, or possibly using this as a repository for keeping backups of all your Vultr servers, or possible even playing with a nice big FusionPBX box ???

They are probably offering such high memory to save in the long run on SSD drive replacement. The more usable memory you have, the less need there is for memory page swaps to the drive (and improved performance). In this case, the more read and writes to an SSD, shorter the life span. SSD is still not as cheap as mechanical drives, and last year for a few months, there was a price increase on them.

We use these for redundant servers for Nerd Vittles and Incredible PBX and some personal web sites plus mail and NeoRouter server platforms. Check out our webcams on Pawleys Island (pawleys.org) and in Charleston (remleyspoint.org) if you enjoy hurricanes up close. We'll be waving... hopefully not from the roof. :)

I want to create a piaf 3.6.5 on vultr to move my rentpbx instance over. Can someone advise on a link to the correct howto for getting 3.6.5 installed on top of their preconfigured centos?

I want to move the pictured instance over to vultr. I need to move it as it has significant customizations that I am not wanting to recreate at this time.

Thanks in advance!

Kmcdaniel,

I was in somewhat of the same position - I had a Green PBX running at home. I upgraded to 16-15 (still at home).

I'd suggest you upgrade to a newer, more supported machine. The transition should be painless (mine wasn't).

Since all your extensions are remote, configure a PJSIP only system and move the port to 5060. Your extensions will never know the difference.

You can spin up a Centos 7 OS and then run the install script - you obviously won't need dahdi.

Who is your provider for DIDs and minutes?

I would love to just transfer it over to 15-16. Unfortunately, I have aastra phones with the scripts running on this box and want to just keep it purring for now.

I am using vitelity.
