All Customers Being Upgraded To SSD!
Friday, August 9, 2013
To all of our current and future customers. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be launching our ALL NEW SSD VPS nodes within the next month. All current customers will be transferred over at no extra cost, and there will be no expected downtime. New customers will come to expect the same low cost pricing that we’ve provided over the last few years but now with SSD enabled nodes.
2x Xeon E5-2630L Processors
ALL SSD (DC Edition) RAID-10
10GB Redundant Uplinks
The above setup will provide a much better environment for our customers including improved uptime/network speeds, and blazing fast read/write speeds at over 300MB/s.
Process of virtual server migration.
1.New nodes will be arriving this upcoming week and will be integrated into our setup.
2.Customers will be migrated on a node basis. This meaning that we will completely migrate customers one node at a time to ensure all goes smoothly.
3.An email will be sent out when customer’s VPS has been migrated to a new SSD node.
To begin, all of our current nodes will be decommissioned. In terms of performance, we’ve utilized all that we can out of them considering their RE4 hard drives are mechanically limited to read/write. The SSD setup will bring in a much more stable and faster environment.
Our support will also get a boost. We’ve hired new techs to work around the clock in providing support to customers. We’re hoping to get back to our 10-minute SLA very soon.
We’re also expanding our Windows/Linux offerings to KVM. Now you’ll be able to get dedicated resources with the KVM based hypervisor with the ability to install either Windows or Linux within the same VPS.
As always, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with a better experience. Please feel free to contact us with any ideas or thoughts on how we might make this experience a better one.
