We have considered another product (which I believe you reference here http://telium.io/pages/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=142 ) and we have concluded that it is not suitable. We need proper detection of node degradation, route degredation, call bridge failure, etc. and their solution doesn't do any of that. (Health monitoring is trivial). As well we need synchronization of databases, files, etc. between nodes and again their solution is very limited (synchronization is trivial - if you can even call it synchronization). So we want to work with HAAst and are trying to come up with a solution.
Our environment is straight forward:
- All calls originate (or terminate) at the trunk (SIP endpoint on the left)
- All phones terminate (or originate) calls (SIP endpoint on the right)
- The HAAst cluster sits in the middle. (both cluster nodes are located in the same data center)
We read your post (http://www.telium.io/pages/forums/viewt ... p?f=6&t=83) about involving the ITSP and we agree with the benefits of doing so. We're just wondering if there is another way to keep calls up? We also understand and agree with your recommendation not to introduce a single point of failure in front of the cluster, but let suppose we accept those risks. Is there a solution?
