Winksite’s scheduled server upgrades went off without a hitch today – no data was lost, nothing broke, and as it was completed in just over an hour I think the downtime passed relatively unnoticed. At this point all services have been successfully tested and we have received zero customer support requests.
Advance planning certainly pays off. Well done Jason!
…and for those of you that care about this kinda thing. Whereas our recent traffic increases resulted in our database servers being maxed out at peak times (98% usage) our new set-up is supporting that same level of traffic at about 2%. Nice.
(Note: More next week on what that data traffic looks like.)
