Server Upgrades in Progress

Server Upgrades in Progress

At this time we are transferring all data from our current web hosting server to brand new hardware. During this migration our clients’ websites will remain online and should have very little downtime. However, please be aware that there may be small amounts of downtime because this process requires changes to DNS settings.

There are several upgrades involved in this migration:

  • 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.
  • A Rescue & Hardware Monitoring KVM layer. Allows the server to be monitored for any potential hardware failures, so that these issues canĀ  be proactively resolved before they result in any downtime and/or possible data loss.
  • More powerful quad-core processors with hyper-threading enabled. Allows the 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.
When the migration has completed we will forward the traffic from the old server to the new server, and will we will provide more details about the changes.
