I'm very excited to announce that the software upgrade last night went much smoother than expected, and that this morning we finally placed the order for the new NWFA server! Though we're only about halfway to our fundraising goal for 2014, we made the decision to place the order to take advantage of a promotion our host was offering. For reference, our last actual migration to a completely new server was back in 2010! The migration timeline we've set has us fully migrated by November 15th, though we may finish much sooner. I don't have any indicator yet as to when the actual migration will take place, or how much downtime we're looking at, but I'll be sure to update this thread when I have an idea. We're working hard to prepare in advance, with the hope that this migration will be seamless to our members. If you do notice any bugs, issues, or anything you think we might want to know about, and you likely will, we ask that you check to see if there's a thread in the Questions, Comments, Ideas, & Announcements section. If not, please create one so we can take a look. To raise additional funds, I'm also happy to announce a sale on all NWFA apparel. From now through Christmas, all apparel is priced at a 20% discount, and shipping is still free! We're tossing in a couple NWFA refrigerator magnets with each order as well. You can find our store by clicking here, or by clicking the NWFA Store tab near the top of the page. As always, all profits go to support this site. We appreciate all your help and support. Lastly, here are some details for those of you who understand! While we'll have slightly less processing power, we'll have quadruple the RAM and a dedicated SSD array for the database Old Server: Dual Xeon E5506 Quad Core @ 2.13GHz 8GB DDR3 SDRAM 2 x SATA 250 GB Hardware RAID 1 250 GB SATA backup Linux CentOS 5 New Server: Single Intel Xeon E3-1270 V2 3.5GHZ Quad Core – Hyperthreaded 32GB DDR3 SDRAM 2 x SATA Software Raid 1 Drives (1TB 7200RPM SATA) 4 x SSD Hardware Raid 10 Drives (120GB Kingston Hyper-X SSD MLC) 1 x SATA Backup Drive (1TB 7200RPM SATA) Linux CentOS 6 64-Bit ========================================================= NWFA Migration Update #1 Alright folks, here's our window. We'll be migrating to our new server at some point tonight, depending on how smooth our work goes. Feel free to discuss in this thread.
