Great news, next week the new hardware for the Eve Cluster will be installed.
That’s right, this is the day we’ve all been waiting for. It’s time to go live with the new cluster. This Tuesday, in a 24 hour extended downtime, old Tranquility hardware is replaced with 70 new IBM 64-bit AMD dual processor blade servers. This operation should double, if not triple the performance on our proxy and application layers.
This is a very high-risk and extensive upgrade and we suggest you set long skill training, in case anything goes wrong. Join us in wishing our server crew good luck.
