Switching away from FreePBX requires new HAAst license?

Postby CRM User » Wed May 03, 2017 5:46 pm

We are planning to switch from FreePBX to pure Asterisk (from Digium) as we have outgrown FreePBX (and the vendor). We are planning to switch in 8-12 months, but need to add HA now.

If we buy your HAAst product will we have to buy a new copy if we replace FreePBX with Asterisk?

As customers become more sophisticated they often outgrow configuration generators (like FreePBX/Elastix/PIAF/etc) and move to pure Asterisk from Digium. This is a common occurrence, and fortunately has no impact on HAAst.

HAAst operates at a layer beneath Asterisk, so it doesn't care if you change configuration generators, Asterisk versions, etc. Your license will continue to operate just fine after your switch.
