We’re moving!

So while on the surface, the server has been running fine with the new harddisks, I discovered that the brand new seconday HD has issues again. I am quite fed up with this and started to shop around for alternative offers and found one from 1&1. So I signed up for a new server which will be faster, more RAM and will have even an SSD for overall less money per month. Sicne the contract with GoDaddy just expired I won’t pay double. So in summary we will get:

  • 12 Cores instead of 4
  • 32GB fully usable RAM instead of 8GB Ram (4 usable due to Ramdisk)
  • 240GB SSD
  • CentOS 7 instead of 6

I will prepare the new server once it is setup and then try to make a move with as little downtime as possible. I will make an post here once we are ready.

  1. A new nether, DL, and more ram and processing power? This is better than 1.8!!! :DD

  2. Unc, You’re THE Best! Thank you for keeping on top of things. I’ve never known any server/owner that was so truly dedicated to keeping things consistent and efficiently organized. I appreciate ALL that you do, and I’m sure the things I am aware of do not even begin to scratch the surface of all the serious time and effort that you put forth, (:along with a family to take care of and r/l obligations:)
