This Saturday, December 19th, from 4 PM to 8 PM PST, all trilogy sites and the blog will be down for a spot of maintenance.
What are we doing? A few things, several of which were inspired by comments on our Server Rack Glamour Shots:
Upgrading one server which does a lot of VM utility work to Windows Server 2008 R2.
Installing shorter power cables.
Installing shorter ethernet cables.
Installing a 24-port gigabit switch, which we will reverse 1U mount.
Adding dual redundant daily USB hard drive backups, as suggested by Joel.
This probably won't take 4 full hours, but we figured it was better to warn about more than we needed, just in case!
All done; behold the beautiful results of Geoff's hard work -- and compare with the old setup.
