About PBXtra™
PBXtra is available in four different server configurations. Additional options and upgrades are available to meet individual performance and redundancy requirements. The Fonality Mini-Tower PC Server is included in the base price of the PBXtra Standard Edition, the Professional Edition, and the Call Center Edition.

 
Choosing the Right Server Upgrades
Fonality has many choices to make your server more robust and redundant. You may also choose to upgrade your server to an HP - which comes standard with an on-site warranty - for a very reasonable fee.  
 

1. Warranties - recommended!
You can upgrade your warranty on the Fonality Mini-Tower PC Server or the Fonality 2U Rack-mount Server to include next day parts replacement by UPS. Or you can upgrade to one of our HP server solutions and take advantage of HP’s standard Next Business Day on-site support (Onsite warranty on server only. Add-on cards carry a 5 yr. mfr's parts warranty.)

 

2. CPU Upgrades - speed up your system!
The Fonality Mini-Tower comes standard with a Celeron 2.5 GHz processor with an upgrade path to a 3.0 GHz Intel P4 processor, which also ships standard on the HP Mini-Tower. Our 2U Rack-Mount now comes standard with a 3.0 GHz Intel P4, upgradeable to an Intel Dual-Core processor. The HP ProLiant Rack-Mount server comes standard with a 2.0 GHz Intel Xeon Dual-Core processor, and can be upgraded with a second Intel Xeon Dual-Core processor. CPU upgrades must be purchased and installed by Fonality or a professional certified by Fonality to ensure socket compatibility and to maintain support coverage.

 
3. RAM Upgrades - speed up your system!
Our base model PBXtra comes standard with 256MB RAM. This is sufficient for either PBXtra Standard with less than 5 phones and not utilizing HUD™, or for systems with low concurrent call volume. If you expect your system to experience reasonably high-loads (lots of people talking at the same time, or many callers waiting in queues) you should upgrade your basic system to 512MB or even 1 GB. Optional upgrades across the entire Fonality line to 1GB of Memory or more are available. Memory upgrades must be reviewed by Fonality or a professional certified by Fonality to ensure compatibility with any existing memory modules and to maintain support coverage.
 
4. RAID Upgrades - protect your valuable data
Studies have shown that the item most likely to fail in your PC is your hard drive. For this reason, Fonality recommends our incredibly affordable RAID-1 SATA Hard Drive Mirroring solution. Please contact your Account Executive to discuss your RAID upgrade path options, as exact compatibility with your existing primary drive must be maintained. In our experience, when upgrading from older servers, swapping both the primary and secondary drives may be required. When adding RAID capability to an existing non-RAID PBXtra server, additional configuration fees will apply.
 
5. Live Backup Server - minimize your downtime!
Fonality offers a clustered backup server option for maintaining high availability of your PBXtra environment. Sleep with confidence that your PBXtra deployment can handle any and all hardware failures.* All of your critical configuration information is replicated at our hybrid-hosted facility as long as your PBXtra maintains presence with us. With our synchronized Live Backup capability, all of your voice mail messages, voice prompts, and MP3 music media files can also be replicated on an identically configured on-site, standby server. With this system in place, and a coordinated fail-over of your carrier connectivity, you can be back up and online in a matter of minutes. Pricing will vary depending upon the specific server selected. This includes complete professional configuration of your cluster and initial synchronization by Fonality.

* Please Note: The Live Backup Stand-by Server must be identically configured to the primary server, including the same number of Base Expansion Cards and configured ports. Identical RAID configurations must also be maintained. A system failover is manually initiated in coordination with physically moving your phone lines to the Live Backup Server, and changing your Backup PBXtra primary IP Address for quick disaster recovery in minutes, not hours.
