The first in a number of upgrades doing up;
$1 million is going into making our network faster. Way faster. Cisco Nexus 7000 routers. Cisco Nexus 5000 switches with Nexus 2000 Fabric Extenders. Server outbound network cap increased 5x. Outbound monthly transfer quota increased 10x.
Everything. In all 6 datacenters.
No down time. No freaky network issues. Just upgrades.
That means even our smallest Virtual Dedicated Server plans start with 2TB of bandwidth. (yes, you read it right.)
Next upů We're also doubling computational capacity. It's already in progress. In the next few months there may be some quick reboots required in the middle of the night. Otherwise nothing to worry about.
What's next? We'll post the next part later.
