I work for an ITSP/ISP/Telco here in New England and have been using Elastix for over 1 year. With successful in-house testing of Elastix since, I've pushed for our company to purchase an ELX-3000 to run our Elastix services. This is why:

- I love Open Source
- Included Support
- Showcase the unit to potential customers and vendors here in the states
- To pump funds into elastix.org because they deserve it
- Benchmark and review the ELX platform

Previously, I was running Elastix on a Dell 1650 server without problems. But there's a few things I would like to see the ELX platform include for enterprise-grade hardware that my Dell 1650 had:

- Redundant PSUs
- RAID1 HDD array minimal
- Integrated FLASH memory for backups and recovery images
- Better CPU cooler (this ELX Celeron runs at 80c IDLE with a solid-state heatsink)
- More fans!
- Better internal wire management
- Add'l ethernet interface for node clustering (supported?)


Other than that, the ELX looks great especially with the LED display (which btw does not display active SIP sessions) and has huge potential.

**EDIT**

They've made corrections to the ELX.. I'm glad they've been helpful this entire time and no point was there dropped communication.

The ELX-3000 still overheats and the Elastix support insists on replacing it with another defunct ELX model? Sorry guys I have no confidence and will be investing the same dollar amount into a better platform such as a Dell 1RU server with RAID1/dual PSU.

I was told by the support team that this error only happened on two
appliances and one of those, unfortunately, was yours. We would be happy
to replaced your appliance for a newer version free of charge. However,
if you feel strongly about returning it, please send it back to us and
we'll refund any payments made to your card.

Best regards,
