It’s getting hot on cinema5D – migration completed [UPDATED x2]
SITE IS NOW DOWN (except for news page)
We’ve been running on our own server for one and a half years now. Downtimes have increased during this time and we had a total blackout during the November 3rd announcements at only twice the usual traffic rate. This made it clear that we need a faster home.
We’ve been setting up a new server and started to move there the last couple of days. While the move itself won’t take very long it will take a lot of time for our nice cinema5D domain to find the new machine and direct it to your screen. We will start to take the site offline tomorrow, Friday 18th 2011 at 8am GMT and the whole process might take up to 24 hours.
Here’s the technical detail if you’re into this kind of stuff:
Our old server had a normal SATA drive, our new server will speed 4 SAS drives with 15k rotations per minute that run simultaneously to serve and backup our data and we have a 5 times faster processor.
This should make us more cool than ever before.
Anyway, sorry for the inconvenience and see you on the other side!
We’ll be updating through twitter, join us there.
