Moving MuNu

Yeah, we're early this year. But after what, four? Five? Outages this week, it's gotten past the point where we need to find a new home.

Hopefully one that will frigging work.

I've ordered two new dual-Opteron servers, each with 2GB of memory, 500GB of disk, 2TB of monthly bandwidth, dual 100mbit ports, DDOS mitigation, and remote reboot and console login.

Our new hosting provider is Softlayer, and they seem to have a far better network setup than DedicatedNow, who have been having some difficulties of late. (To be fair, DedicatedNow have only been responsible for one of the outages in the past week; the others have been the result of spam floods and some strange software problem with Apache that I haven't been able to resolve.)

I was hoping to hold out until Conroe-based servers were available, since they run quite a bit faster, but we can't afford any more downtime and Softlayer's private network allows us to easily add or migrate to new servers at a later date. With DedicatedNow we have a simple crosslink between the two servers, but the Jawa Report is on a separate server, and we couldn't easily add it to the cluster. With Softlayer, all servers are put on dedicated VLANs on the second network port, so if we add another server later it will automatically be included in the cluster.

I expect that we will be moving into our new home in two weeks time, so please bear with us until then.

Update: Just got a phone call from Softlayer. The servers are been set up now, and we should have them soon. Yay!

2 Maybe this new place includes a tip jar in the default setup?

3 Not that I expect you'll leave the default there for more than a few minutes.

4 With the new hosting company, I'm paying by PayPal, so I might finally put up a tip jar.

Before it was too much bother to transfer the funds, but now I can use it directly to pay for the servers.

5 Tip jar, sweet!

So when we send you $1 U.S., that's like, what 500 in Aussie money? Enough to pay the rent from what i hear ;-)

6 Tip Jar? FINALLY and about time... Pixy, you have been too good to us and we don't think you should have had to do this on your own for as long as you have been doing it.

Thanks and I think I speak for all the vast, vast, vast majority, say 99.99999999% of us

7 Hear hear! (Or is it "here here?")

At any rate, count me in with contributions to the tip jar.

In fact, I would be glad to pay a monthly, or annual, fee for the privilege of being here at Munuvia (and for being spoiled by Pixy for over a year now . . . ).

8 It is "hear hear".

9 Yes, please set up a tipjar ASAP.

10 I've copied a full backup of munu onto the new servers. Current plan is to move the forums this coming weekend, and the blogs the following weekend.

We shall see.
