As part of a major data centre reshuffle at our hosts, we are moving approx. 1k miles west to Dallas.
To minimise future outages, we are giving our hardware a good bump up in spec at the same time.
This should resolve a lot of recent performance problems, which you are probably relieved to hear about if you are a frequent visitor within busy periods.
More details to follow soon, but we are anticipating at least a 24 hour outage with *no access* to RHP.
We will be undertaking the work at the earliest opportunity, so although a scheduled outage, there may only be a week (or less) notice prior to the event.
We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause, the first major migration of this nature since 2008.
We will compensate timebanks and suspend timeouts of course.
More details to follow over next couple of weeks. A broadcast private message and email will go out to everyone once we have concrete details.
