Over the past year there has been a building of interest in running Asterisk on cloud infrastructure such as Amazon’s EC2. Here’s a compilation of sources on the topic:
- Ronald Lewis’ blog
- The ResVoip Project
- Voxilla’s VoIP In The Cloud: Part1
- Voxilla’s VoIP In The Cloud: Part2
- The Nir Simionovich Blog
There’s a considerable information in the combination of these sources. It now appears that running Asterisk on a cloud platform is moving from experimental to useful, even desirable in some circumstances.
In truth, it’s not really my cup of tea, a little beyond my SOHO scope. But it does seem to be a source of great enthusiasm in some circles.
Update 2/18/2009: Eric from rf.com has create a complete Asterisk image (AMI) on Amazon EC2 including timers. Here are the details.
