    Just trying to plan out the next VM server for our company. I know with Windows single instance, I was reserving about 40GB, (10 for OS, 5 for Apps, 10 for swap/temp storage/windows updates and 10GB for backups) but I'd like to see how many 3cx debian VMs I can squeeze in 500GB (w/o recording storage)

    Hello @sean.suntelnetworks

    If we are only discussing disk space then i am afraid only you can answer your question, as this depends on how large your installations will be, how large are your backups, how often you backup etc.
    The only thing i can advice is to always overestimate so you don't find your self having to change hard drives and un-installing and re-installing.

    Well, can you give me some baseline for say 25 extensions, 200 calls a day total. each 5 minutes in length. One call report generated a day, one backup a week, keep 5 backups.

    There's has to be a formula where your high profile clients are provided when planning out installs.
