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.
