General notes

Last Updated: 06.04.2016 - Notes: Information on Intel Processors and CPU family specifications is available here: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/home-page.html. Recording and Voicemail - Every 60 seconds of recorded audio is approximately 1MB. Remember this into consideration when choosing hard disk size.

Logging - Verbose logging consumes disk space. On a busy system the logs folder can consume up to 1GB per day.

Every 5000 calls in full verbosity consume 2GB of HDD space. This list describes the recommended operating systems. For a list of supported operating systems click this link: http://www.3cx.com/blog/docs/supported-windows-versions/

  1. What is the minimum and what is the recommended hardware requirement for v14 standalone AND the CLoud version? Can you also add this in a document ? Because these CPU’s that are in the documentation are already old and the working of CPU’s changes as well. What is more important ? To have more cores or just have 2 cores but more Ghz per core?
