Dallas Server Upgrades/Migration

Post by IrishDragon » Fri Oct 29, 2010 10:08 am

We are in the final phase of a Dallas migration to a much faster system, for example Supermicro X8DTN+-F with RAID 10 with Adaptec 5805 512mb card, 6 x SAS 15k RPM drives, etc. The file access is extremely fast.

This system is fairly future-proof, at least for now. There is enough room in the chassis for a secondary 6 x RAID 10 configuration, and the ability to increase CPU speeds (up to dual 5670 Hexcore), along with an increased RAM capacity (up to 288GB).

You will experience down-time as we make a final migration of the old files and transfer of IP addresses. We are shutting down access to the older system in order to speed up the process of the file migration. We will automatically restart your game servers once the migration is complete.

Nice! Upgrades are always good even if there is dome down time.
