PSC Blog Server - Maintenance Monday, Nov 1st

October 29 2010

The blog server that hosts my blog and a bunch of others (Ed, Alan, Mary Beth, Connections, Domino, etc) is going to be down Monday, November 1st, 2010 starting at 11 AM Central time. We are virtualizing the server and giving it a better host. Virtualizing and moving to the host is hard to exact estimate, but it could be anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.

    John - just my 2 cents - I can appreciate the fact that since it's your blog and your server you can do what you want, and of course that's your choice, but you're also taking down the popular sites of Ed, Alan, & Mary Beth at the same time. Again - your prerogative but speaking from experience I'd have limited this scale of downtime to the hours of darkness or in the weekend. Also in future you might do what we do and look at a clustering solution - have a word with one of the many experts at ILUG - I'm sure they'll be able to help. Or maybe you're reminding fellow bloggers what they're getting doesn't include proper SLAs - hmmm that's ok too - it's your sandpit.

    See you next week - buy me a guinness and we'll have a chat.
