VoipNow can be easily deployed in a Service Provider environment on Virtuozzo 7.0 for Linux and higher and OpenVZ 7 and higher. 

You need to install the EZ templates for CentOS/RedHat 6.x or 7.x on the hardware node.


The instructions below will help you install VoipNow on the hardware node so that you can set up the CT (Container) with VoipNow very fast in automated environments. As long as you adjust the CT performance parameters to match the system usage, the performance is not affected by the fact that the machine is virtualized.

Install VoipNow EZ templates

Download the VoipNow EZ templates from here and install them using the rpm command. 

Example for VoipNow 5.2.5 and CentOS-7:

rpm -Uv

Create compatible CT

Create a container that meets the minimum VoipNow requirements.

Example for OpenVZ 7 and container 101:

#create container with ip

vzctl create 101--ipadd --hostname --ostemplate centos-7-x86_64

#set nameserver and enable statefull firewall

vzctl set 101 --nameserver --netfilter full --save

#set minimum recommended requirements limits to the container

vzctl set 101 --ram 32G --swap 8G ----memguarantee 100 --netfilter full --diskspace 400G --save

#optionally set CPU limit parameters.

vzctl set 101 --cpus 16 --cpulimit 1600 --save

#start the container

vzctl start 101
