  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4.6 Release Update, PHP 7 Update and SmarterMail AV Updates

    No comments July 24th, 2015 2 View(s)

    Earlier this week, Microsoft released Visual Studio 2015 and the .Net Framework 4.6 which includes ASP.NET 5, lots of excitement has been around these releases and we’ve had many customers asking about our upgrade plan for .Net 4.6 and when we will support it. We are very pleased to announce that this evening at 9PM MDT we will roll out the new .net release to all web servers.

    The new release of .net includes many improvements and new features which can be reviewed on Microsoft’s MSDN https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171868(v=vs.110).aspx

    We will also take this maintenance period to also upgrade PHP 7 to the latest release. We are very pleased to see the reception of PHP 7 and the number of clients that are already testing it!

    We are also looking to improve our SmarterMail system’s AV protection with very powerful AV scanner. At this time however, there are some technical issues with SmarterMail that are being addressed, once the SmarterTools team has resolved the issues we will be providing more information about this new AV technology and its massive improvements.

    Scheduled Date: 07-25-2015
    Scheduled Time:
     3:00 AM GMT
    Max Outage Duration: 10 Minutes / Server

  • PHP 7 now available for use and testing!

    No comments July 18th, 2015 3 View(s)

    We are very pleased to announce that PHP 7 is now installed and available for all customers! PHP 7 introduces many new features, performance improvements and full 64-bit support. Please keep in mind though that PHP 7 was just released to beta 1 status about a week ago (07-10-2015), this is not a production supported PHP release and may have many bugs and other stability issues.

    We are adopting this new release so that users who rely on PHP for their application development can test their application to aid in future-proofing their code or just testing out new language features and syntax candy. Since this is a beta release, support for 3rd party extensions such as Ioncube, Zend Guard and Phalcon are not available.

    Some of the new features include…

    • Improved performance: PHP 7 is up to twice as fast as PHP 5.6
    • Consistent 64-bit support
    • Many fatal errors are now Exceptions
    • Removal of old and unsupported SAPIs and extensions
    • The null coalescing operator (??)
    • Combined comparison Operator (<=>)
    • Return Type Declarations
    • Scalar Type Declarations
    • Anonymous Classes

    For more information about PHP 7 and the beta 1 release, please read the PHP announcement – http://us3.php.net/archive/2015.php#id2015-07-10-4

    We hope everyone enjoys the new release! If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please let us know.

  • Weekend Maintenance Overview

    No comments June 27th, 2015 10 View(s)

    The upgrades that were scheduled for this weekend have been partially completed. The upgrades to our router have been completed without issues. The new hardware for our 5th generation router is around 10x more powerful than the previous one. Since this was a full hardware upgrade, we’ve also upgraded the router network interfaces to very high-end Intel 10GbE cards. While most of our servers are 1GbE, the boost in the main network cards that handle all the incoming / outgoing traffic has really helped our performance. We fully expect that all customers will notice much better performance and latency from our Denver, Colorado location.

    The upgrades for our mail server MX01 did not complete. Due to issues that were not seen in our tests we were unable to complete the migration into our cloud hosting platform. Issues with our Adaptec storage system prevented the installation of Server 2012 R2. The server was restored to its original configuration and brought back online after several hours.

    The maintenance for MX01 will be rescheduled at a much later date, possibly towards the end of July. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this, we will have this resolved at a later date.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time and for choosing ASPnix as your hosting provider!
