    We have numerous clinics running their own local PBX’s, clustered with PBX’s in the cloud. In case of an known upcoming local problem (eg: major storm coming), we want to allow the local clinics to failover the phone server to the cloud PBX proactively, so that phone service / voicemails / etc continue without interruption in case the storm knocks out the local clinic.

    Is it possible to let end users initiate a failover, without giving them full access to the GUI?

    Yes. You can grant users limited monitoring and control capabilities through

    1. a LCD interface on the PBX (built in). HAAst supports LCD interfaces (see installation guide for models), and you can enabled control such that an end user can promote/demote a peer from the keypad on the front of the PBX. They can also confirm status, monitor synchronizations are happening, etc. from the LCD display.
    2. a simple web UI (which controls HAAst through the REST interface)

    I should also add that VARs/resellers sometimes add cluster control into their own GUI or system administration interface. HAAst includes socket, web (PHP), and Python examples of how to monitor and control HAAst, so adding cluster monitoring and control to your own product is simple. (Creating your own simple web page with a big “FAILOVER” button is a 10 minute exercise)
