Major Maintenance Coming
New server, ahoy.
13 Mar 2016 - 18:53
Just wanted to make you guys aware of some upcoming events. You probably have noticed a lot of server instability lately. Our primary server has a failing drive (no, not the drive that houses your artwork). We have been nursing this machine along for about 3 years. Now, we're preparing to replace the whole server with a new one. The downtime should be minimal as the machine is already configured, and we've mirrored the data from the old machine. But, there *will* be some downtime as we take the new machine to the colo facility, ensure that all of the data has been mirrored, and then swap out the servers.
I don't yet have a date for that, but it's coming, and soon.
Will let you know when we have a date.
