    we have tried virtualising other Asterisk distros before with limited success.

    we always have voice quality issues, even if no other VMs are running on the server.

    I can see that with Elastix there is a VM image to download and use with Xen.

    My questions are:

    1- Are there any voice quality issues when we run Elastix under Xen in production?

    2- Can we use VMWare Server instead of Xen?

    A quick search of this (or any asterisk type forum) will give all sorts of opinions re virtualised/paravirtualised deployments.

    I have recently posted her on this very topic, just use the search box (at the top of the page) for "vmware".
    The answer is always going to include :

    "it depends on your hardware/load you are will encounter",
    "The type of virtualisation used"
    "If you are using vmware you MUST get a kernel optimised for vmware"

    (the vmware image you refer to is very dated, I don't recommend it's use, but yes Elastix works absolutely fine with elastix 1.3 and a vmware kernel to suit)
