Database Server Upgrade: Outage Saturday

on December 5, 2009

There will be an outage today from 5 pm - 7 pm PST as we upgrade the database server.

If you're curious, we're going from 2.5 GHz to 3.33 GHz CPUs, and using the old CPUs to build a second, backup database server.

Our last upgrade was in July when we went from 24 GB to 48 GB. That old pulled memory will also be used to populate the second database server.
