New Web Server - Super Powerful - COMPLETE

Postby TC on Sun Jul 31, 2011 11:50 am

I am pleased to announce we've bought a new custom made machine for our UKCS web server as the old one is now too old and slow for our growing needs. We've spent £3400 on the new machine and its a beauty. It has 6 dual threaded cores providing 12 engines, 32 gigs of memory, 450 megabytes per second SSDs, powerful raid controller with 512 MB battery backed read & write cache and other hard disks for extra backup.

Our objective is to provide you with a consistently fast and reliable UKCS web service. :D

I'm preparing to migrate to the new machine hopefully later today, though this may change. During that change over time the UKCS websites will need to be taken offline while we synchronise files between the old and new machine. This will also affect in game stats and certain features. We will keep the outage time to a minimum.

Be aware that the UKCS website will be subject to interruptions prearing for the change, during the change and for a few days after while we fine tune the setup.

Thank you for your patience during the transition and join me in looking forward to a much faster UKCS experience :cheers:

I'd like to thank all of those who have donated to UKCS which has made this upgrade possible - THANK YOU! <3


[Update: Server switch is now likely Mon/Tue - ran out of preparation time today]
