RIP ye olde big iron servers


Staff member
While most of you know that the forum software we are using is new, last night we switched off the hardware.

After 2 years of planning, work, and a lot of hand-wringing, TRIBE has fully migrated from her home on a web server and giant hand-built database server, to her new home on cloud servers.

Since the board is already running on the cloud, last night at around 9:30pm Heliox switched both the big iron machines off, and took them out of the rack at Front Street, completing the transition.

These machine performed admirably, considering they having been powered up for over a decade.

Than you Heliox for your master computer wizardry and system administration.
