After the migration to our new datacenter, we found that our billing was about 20% higher than expected, due to the way storage space, speed, and data transfer is being charged in our use case. As a result, we are making some alterations to our server farm infrastructure.

Most of these changes have alrady been completed earlier this week, as there was no risk of downtime, but I have not had a chance to make an announcement about the remaining scheduled maintenance, until now. So, this is notice that we will be making some changes that will result in downtime of the website and service.

This maintenance is scheduled for Sep 09 2016 10:30 PM -0400 until Sep 10 2016 01:30 AM GMT -0400. The actual downtime is expected to begin approximately an hour into the maintenance window and lasting for about 15-30 minutes.

I will update this thread once it is complete or with any status updates.

Sincerely,

Brandon

It was just pointed out to me that I forgot to update this thread after the maintenance completed. Sorry about that! Smile

The maintenance completed relatively quickly and went off without a hitch. There were two separate outages that each lasted for about 3 minutes. So, it was better than expected and performance monitoring shows that the system is performing just as well as before, with room to grow, and should cost a good bit less than this past month (close to what we were paying before we migrated to our new datacenter).

Ciao!

Brandon
