New Servers This Weekend


June 11, 2013 by Brian Ghidinelli

While everyone is focusing on fun and family this holiday season, we've been hard at work bringing PCI DSS compliance to This weekend we're finally ready to install 12 new servers for the next generation of Here is the schedule:

  • Thursday Day - Visual inspection

  • Friday Day - Cabinet setup, new hardware move-in, power-on

  • Saturday Day - Final configuration and testing

  • Saturday Night - Migrate data to new hardware

  • Sunday Day - Update existing hardware, rotate back into cluster

Saturday evening is the window for possible service outage. We will be migrating key services like Web, Mail and Database starting around 11PM. We are allocating up to four hours for the migration but expect it to take less than 60 minutes. From 11PM-3AM may be unavailable or unreliable. This site will also be subject to the same window.

We'll write a follow-up here when all is said and done and we've had some rest. And cleaned the office. :)

See you on the flip side...
