Upcoming downtime
« on: November 05, 2014, 04:47:13 pm »
The servers/sites will be read only, and down for an unknown period this Saturday. We will be migrating everything over to new servers. Keep an eye on twitter during this time to know what is happening. The migrations will be staggered so that there will always be IRC access on Omninet. During this time I would suggest using irp.irc.omnimaga.org to keep from having to switch servers when they are brought offline though.

Just migrating platforms inside the same host. The current platform is rather unstable and they have recommended that we migrate off of it.

What is the current platform and what is the new one? By the way will you get better technical specs like extra disk space, RAM and bandwidth?

We are just switching from their old internal platform (third party) to their new in house solution. I'm not sure on the specifics for resources (I haven't talked to their sales team yet) but I don't expect it to change. We currently have a lot of bandwidth and pretty good RAM/CPU specs. Our disk space is smaller then I'd like, but the disk speed (SSD) makes up for it. I also take steps to keep resource consumption (bandwidth/cpu/ram/disk) to a minimum where possible. Even though we have enough to spare, I'd rather keep as much extra unused so that we have a lot of breathing room if something happens.
