Unlike in the Ma Bell era, the real beauty of VoIP technology is being able to experiment with different providers and never having to put all your eggs in one basket. And today we’re pleased to introduce a new XiVO hosting and trunk combination that provides first-class service at truly incredible price points. For the XiVO cloud provider, we’ve chosen OVH, a cloud platform that was recommended to us by our friends at 3CX. It also works great with the… Read More ›

As we celebrate Labor Day, it seemed appropriate to document why Wazo separates the men from the boys so your phones don’t end up as boat anchors buried in the sand. Today our focus is “High Availability (HA)” and “Multi-Tenant (MT)“, two very expensive options for many PBXs including some that loosely tout their platforms as free. In the PBX context, HA means that, when your server fails, there’s another one waiting in the wings to automatically take over. Much… Read More ›

Nobody has to tell us how painful change can be. We oversaw the deployment of over 30,000 IBM PCs only to switch horses and become a dedicated Mac lover. And we’ve invested almost 10 years in another Asterisk® GUI only to be disappointed by the direction of that project. That led to our New Year’s Resolution to find a better mousetrap for unified communications open source development. And, boy, did we find one. So here’s the deal. You either believe… Read More ›

We’ve heard you. Many prefer the ease of installation offered by the Incredible PBX ISO. Unfortunately, until now, it wasn’t available if you wanted a do-it-yourself Cloud Solution other than, of course, using a turnkey Incredible PBX server at RentPBX. Well, now you have a choice. A great new VPS provider, Vultr, now gives you the option of using your own ISO when you deploy Cloud servers on their worldwide platforms. It’s not 100% intuitive just yet, but Vultr will… Read More ›

Embed from Getty Images With the impending demise of Copy.com, it seemed like a good time to revisit the subject of backups and to do a little advance preparation for that rainy day when your Incredible PBX™ server decides it’s taken its last breath. We recently documented how to build an Incredible PBX in the Cloud for a one-time cost of $10.50. And we showed you how to build a Linux Sandbox in the Cloud for the same bargain-basement price.… Read More ›

Embed from Getty Images About once a year, we try to shine the spotlight on Asterisk® security in hopes of saving lots of organizations and individuals a little bit (or a lot) of money. In light of last week’s major security lapse in the Asterisk® dialplan of those using FreePBX® since the Asterisk@Home days, now seemed like a good time for a review. As we’ve noted before, the problem with open source phone systems is they’re open source phone systems.… Read More ›

We’ve spent a good bit of time documenting a dirt cheap way to learn about VoIP in the Cloud with our Incredible PBX offering using a $10.50 virtual machine at CloudAtCost. Is it production ready? Probably not. But we’re reminded of the old saying that pizza is a lot like sex: “When it’s good, it’s really good. And, when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.” That pretty much sums up CloudAtCost. And it’s not like a one-time investment for the… Read More ›
