As part of Xorcom's drive to enhance and improve communications in a variety of business settings, we have developed a product called Xorcom Rapid Recovery (XRR).
It is a unique software package installed on a credit-card-size (or smaller form factor) Disk-on-Key (DOK) that enables simple, safe and speedy recovery of Xorcom's XR1000, XR2000 and XR3000 IP-PBX solutions. It will work with the original system-delivered software on Xorcom appliances.
In just a few minutes, the XRR can restore and recover the Xorcom IP-PBX, including its configuration files, voice prompts and even voice mail, if desired.
Since it is possible to give each backup a descriptive name, many different IP-PBX system backups may be stored on the same DOK. The XRR compresses typical Asterisk configurations, including the complete trixbox CE or Elastix Asterisk distributions, to less than 0.5 GB. Consequently, a standard 2 GB DOK will typically store up to 4 different system recoveries.
The backup file created with the Rapid Recovery utility can be used to create a Xorcom Live Rescue USB disk-on-key, which will allow you to run the entire PBX directly from the USB drive on the server. This should be a temporary solution, designed for disaster recovery until maintenance of the PBX can be scheduled.
