We will be performing several maintenance in server, (IP address: 188.8.131.52) the impending mandatory maintenance and migration that will be occurring within 48 hours.
Server(s) are being migrated onto brand new, upgraded hardware. We plan to facilitate this migration both as quickly and easily as possible, but also want to assure you that your total satisfaction with this migration is our primary objective. We will keep you updated via email throughout this entire migration.
Please be aware that there may be small amounts of downtime and that this process does require a change of IP address and nameservers
All servers will now have a RAID1 hard disk configuration. In brief, a RAID1 is two disks containing exact copies of the data (a mirror) which allows for increased read speeds for faster delivery of requested data. Data can be read from both disks independently or in tandem, which also provides redundancy in the event of a disk failure.
All servers also feature an optional Rescue & Hardware Monitoring KVM layer (which is included by default) allowing to monitor the server for any potential hardware failures and proactively resolve these issues before they result in any downtime and/or possible data loss.
All servers will contain quad-core processors with hyper-threading enabled, which allows the for the processor to effectively share the workload at any given moment between cores resulting in the parallelization of computational processes, or simply put: increased speed.
All servers are pre-configured to allow for the attachment of off-server SAN (Storage Area Network) backup solutions, allowing for increased flexibility and control over your backups.
I will post updates here as needed.
