    What's the size of your system, i.e. how many simultaneous calls licenses you have ?
    DL120 should handle with ease 128 SC, depends on memory, codecs, etc.

    This is helpful as a guide ...
    http://www.3cx.com/downloads/3CX_Phone_System_Operating_System_Specifications.pdf

    In general, the average 3CX server is pretty lightly loaded - But - if you are heavily into IVR, voice recording, and/or remote extensions - then I'd go up a notch ... This is because 3CX normally just handles SIP connections between devices, and backs out of the connection once the conversation is established - but these other app's are more processor intensive and if you under-spec' the server, you can get issues e.g. voice recordings with broken audio.

    So - just a 'be careful' there and think about what you might be doing with your 3CX in the future, as it's not just about the number of simultaneous calls ...

    Best regards

    what type of licencse are you going with 4sc 128sc etc... depending on your license and the usage it varies on the server best fit for each solution.In my experience in smaller deployments a small form factor is more than sufficient. I have clients with 8sc only using duo core processor 4g ram and cpu usage barely reaches 5% at any given time. no issues with call recordings etc.... I'd suggest adding an exernal drive for call recordings it will eliviate any memory issues in the futre and is very inexpensive.

    The server that you selected, as pointed out by Orlin, can easily handle a 128SC.

    Hi

    Many thanks for your responses. I decided to go for this, rather than a Micro Server, as for the price it is not worth messing around.
