I'd like to do a brief site maintenance and code push in about 32 hours. The scheduled time:
- 2100 PDT Thursday
- 0400 UTC Friday
This code push will involve a period of downtime. I'm estimating it will take about 10 minutes. During that window, I will be switching us from our old
sb-db01 database master to our new
sb-db05 cluster. I have to take the site offline for this since it's what we call a master failover, and our system isn't designed to do that without downtime.
After this maintenance, we will be completely on new hardware -- and all of the trusty hardware we've had for the past three years since moving to ServerBeach will be completely retired.
As always, there will be another post here as well as on our Twitter account when the time comes. Feel free to shoot me any questions or comments, I'll watch this post!
PS HELLO PLURKERS.
