Today is our freeze day for Kali here at CCP, yesterday we deployed about 15 hotfixes to Tranquility and we have more hardware coming.

New Cluster Coming !
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.
Upcoming patch notes
They can be found at the dev blog. Looks pretty good ! Plenty of fixes and stabability issues will be applied.
There is a new post on the devblog about the upcoming Server Cluster Revamp, let’s hope the lag will be decreased in the HQ’s homesystem. Though it has been a lot better the past few days !
