4/6/16 Maintenance Complete

East Kingdom Informational Notification

The East Kingdom Server successfully went through a planned upgrade during the evening
of Wednesday, 4/6/2016 between 9:00 pm and 9:50 pm.

“The long and short of it is that we’re upgrading our server – gaining double the memory, 33% more processing power and doubling our hard drive space. Much of that should be trivial, even transparent, but resizing the disk can take a while and can’t be done while the server is in use.

While the everyday impact of this shouldn’t be obvious, it will allow us to add more features and provide more services in general. Behind the scenes, we’ll also experience fewer recurring issues (we’ve been bumping up against memory limitations more and more as time goes on, which sometimes results in database issues that can affect different sites and
applications).
There are some interesting and useful things planned that will take advantage of this upgrade, so keep an eye out :)”
In Service,

Thanks & Have a nice day!
