Wink New Server is here!

Hello guys,

It's been almost two years since our last hardware upgrade and this time we are getting an all new server rather than just an upgrade.

The new server is already provisioned for us.

The Specs:

Quote:
2 * Intel Xeon-Westmere 5620-Quadcore [2.4GHz]
6 GB DDR3 Registered 1333
2 * Western Digital WD Caviar RE 16 WD2500YS [250GB] (RAID1) - OS
2 * Intel X25-E Extreme SSDSA2SH032G1 [32GB] (RAID1) - DB
100 Mbps
Centos 6 64bit
We are still in the process of prepping the server and hardening it for live use. Hopefully this will improve the overall performance and will prove useful when we upgrade to vBulletin 4 in the near future.

Cheers,
Strider

Re: New Server is here!

Update 1:

The databases are now in the new server. Some performance degradation is expected.

Performance degradation? I thought you said it would be better.

Our webserver is still in the old server (i.e all php scripts, images, js, css etc.) and the db is in the new server. So instead of connecting the mysql locally in RAM, the scripts needs to go via the internal LAN. The internal network is Gigabit but will never be as fast as localhost and hence the chance of some performance issues.

But this is temporary. Once I'm confident that all the DBs are working in order, the IP addresses will be removed from the old server and attached to the new one, completing the migration.

Re: New Server is here!

Update 2

Everything seems to be in order. I've just raised a support ticket to move the IPs to the new server. A few minutes of downtime expected (hopefully).

The transfer to the new host is now complete. We have some unexpected errors and bugs but all seems be sorted now. But if you notice any problems or errors please let me know via PM or by posting a reply here.
