Scheduled Server Upgrade - Forum Outage Alert
#1
Hi guys, I just wanted to let everyone know that we will be upgrading the server to add more CPU power, more RAM, more back up space and more Disc Space! This will help speed up the forums and prevent sql crashes as the forum continues to grow!

The upgrade will be June 5th, 2015 at 1am Eastern time zone...it should be completed in 5-6 hours. You will experience a system outage during the scheduled time frame. As always, there may be a few bugs after a big upgrade like this but we will be watching for them and fixing anything that isn't right after the upgrade.

Sorry in advance for any inconveniences but this is a big step in bringing the server up to modern terms!

YEAH! More power. Bigger cam, larger valves, headers and a ring & pinion upgrade all good for me. I does seem to be working faster in my non-technical assessment

Thank you

Are you putting stripes on the server? Everybody knows that stripes make things faster. Which stripe though, the 71-72 hockey stripes or the 73 style? Cool

Full server upgrade...LOL! We are even getting a solid state main drive instead of an old cold war era disc drive! Main drive space is doubling and our back up drive is increasing exponentially!

Here is what we are getting:
Primary drive from 250 GB SATA to 512GB SSD
Backup drive from 250 GB SATA to 1 TB SATA
CPU from Quad Q8300 to E3-1230 V2 Quad-Core 3.3GHz w/HT
RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB

I'm not expecting any issues as the host is ghosting all our data to the new equipment before it is even plugged in. It should be seamless but the outage alert is just precautionary.
