    New to 3CX. How does 3CX implement failover or high availability in its Enterprise edition?
    Can it do real-time replication to a branch site or colocation?
    If not, can it do automatic or manual failover o a branch site? How well does it work?
    Thank you

    With the Enterprise edition (single licence which support x2 activations) I would say it works a lot better.

    There is a standard fail-over option with the PRO licence however it was a real nightmare to setup and although I did achieve it there was a lot to configure (Share between systems, Windows scripts, DNS etc).

    This will cover a lot of what is required for the fail-over:https://www.3cx.com/docs/failover/ with an Enterprise licence. I have however given some additional points below:

    * Ideally the environment should require SPLIT DNS:
    https://www.3cx.com/docs/creating-fqdn-split-dns/

    * 3CX Provided FQDN and SSL is mandatory.

    * There is no Active/Active setup for 3CX failover. You can only configure it as active/ passive.

    * The IP address setup should be static and configured accordingly in each PBX used.

    * The Failover System will register at start-up the new IP address on your FQDN which is used for external devices to connect to (STUN, SBC, 3CXPhone, Presence).

    I hope this helps.

    Can the passive host be located in a different WAN/branch office?
