  • MYSQL01 Maintenance / Cloud Migration

    No comments May 15th, 2015 1 View(s)

    This evening we will be moving our MYSQL01 server into our Hyper-V cloud environment. This migration will move MySQL into a massive multi-server backed farm powered by Intel’s E5 v3 Xeons. This upgrade will improve the performance, scalability and reliability of MySQL greatly! You can expect to see higher throughput, faster query execution and more efficient query caching. We will also be upgrading the OS that MySQL operates on to Server 2012 R2 from 2008 R2 in order to take full advantage of the new hardware.

    Scheduled Date: 05-16-2015
    Scheduled Time:
     11:00 PM – 1:00 AM GMT
    Max Outage Duration: 2 Hours

    During the migration time period access to MYSQL01 will be unavailable until the migration of the data completes. If you have any questions, please contact our support department.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

  • MX01 Maintenance

    No comments April 24th, 2015 13 View(s)

    Within the next 15 minutes will be migrating our MX01 mail server into our cloud infrastructure. This process will take about 90 minutes to complete (possibly less). During this time you will not be able to send or receive email. Our backup mail servers will catch any incoming mail from 3rd party mail servers and deliver these emails once MX01 comes back online.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!

  • MSSQL01 Cloud Migration / Maintenance

    4 comments April 22nd, 2015 33 View(s)

    We will be starting the migration of our MSSQL01 SQL Server to our new Server 2012 R2-based cloud platform later this evening. We expect this to take up to 2-hours to complete. During this time the database services will be unavailable.

    This migration will not affect any data or cause any issues. The hostname for the US MSSQL01 server will remain the same and you will not need to update any scripts or external services.

    Once completed, customers should notice the immediate increase in performance over the previous system. Our new system has a very large amount of dedicated processors and RAM to SQL server and will easily handle our current load!

    If you have any questions or concerns please contact our support department!

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix as your web hosting provider!
