Hello all.

As part of a project I’m working on to migrate from Asterisk 1.0.11.1 to the latest LTS version, I’m looking into providing a HA/failover solution for the new Asterisk installation I’ll be deploying.

It would appear my best bet would be to use the R850 Digium appliance.
Does anyone have any experience running one of these devices along with AsteriskNOW? I ask because apparently from what I gather from the rseries admin manual, it’s required to use flat files vs. SQL — and obviously AsteriskNOW uses SQL.

Failing that, I wonder if AsteriskNOW is nothing more than Asterisk
11.3.0 + FreePBX? Would I be fine installing 11.3+FreePBX? I’m mainly wondering what the differences would be from AsteriskNOW vs. a vanilla install. I’m currently trying to see if I can find any difference using virtual machines, but any info would be extremely helpful and time-saving 🙂

Thanks!
