MemoryNOTE:Elastix, Pbx-in-a-Flash, AsteriskNOW etc. require the PBX1000 plan at a minimum.  If you plan to install a lot of modules and extra software you should select a plan with more memory. If you plan to use many extensions and/or trunks, you should select a plan with more memory and bandwidth. If you plan to record a lot of calls, you should select a plan with more storage.

# of CPUsDepending on which server you are on and which plan you have, your VPS could be assigned between 1 to 4 CPU cores.  This roughly translates into processing power.  Presenting this in terms of Ghz of processing power is not as useful on a virtual server allocated multple processor cores.  The frequency per core will vary depending on which server you are on.  We thought it would be more useful to present this in terms of # of processor cores.

Compression / decompression (transcoding) requires the most processing power.  For example, transcoding can occur when phone conversations take place between SIP phones and/or trunks using different compression methods.

1+ CPUs 2+ CPUs 3+ CPUs 4+ CPUs
Estimated simultaneous 2-way callsThe number of 2-way simultaneous calls possible will vary depend on how your server is used.

Typically, bandwidth limits imposed by your internet service provider, or intermeidary providers between your ISP and our datacenter, become a bottleneck before you reach our server and network limits. One way to maximize the # of calls possible is to use a high compression codec such as g729.
5-20 calls 7-30 calls 10-40 calls 15-60 calls
