Doubled Server Space
« on: November 28, 2012, 07:27:46 PM »
I wasn't even sure where to post this LOL
But we just doubled our server space by adding our 2nd server. Most of you know we run a few other websites, like Itsbetterhandmade, promotehandamde and more. There was a total of 8 other websites on our server. Well we got a second identical sever to the one that was running everything and moved those 8 domains onto their own server. We started this yesterday and completed it today.
Basically handmadeartists will not have to compete with the other 8 domains for server resources. I've already noticed an improvement and I hope we will notice more improvements. Dan, who is Josey's other half is the server guru and will be looking deeply into our server configurations and keeping everything optimized.

Anyway just wanted to keep everyone in the loop and let you know we added some extra hardware to our network and are working on constant improvement.

Like Teresa, I like being "in the loop".  But more to the point.  Thank you Andrew for all that you do.  No matter what we know or don't know, the one thing that we all KNOW is that you and Kimberly and the Kangaroo Crew are always working to make things better for us all.  I think I can speak for everyone, it is truly appreciated.  Ya'll are just a "OOAK" group of folks.   :-* :o

You guys are too funny!  Bottom line is all the pictures and such take up a huge amount of room and the more full the server gets the slower it runs...so more server space means everything runs faster.  It is a good problem, running out of room to store all your wonderful pictures, and we love it!

I'll fourth the motion.  Unfortunately, I knew what you meant and understand how it works.  Thanks to our English connection for maintaining everything in working order.
