fyi- APUG Server Migration This Month (AUG 2008)
We've been hosting our server with Rackspace.com for 2yrs now and the contract is up. They have been solid but the hosting industry has changed a great deal in those 2yrs. It is now more competitive than ever, not just in price but in service. In order to cut back some costs, I have decided to move us to a new host. The new server has been ordered and will be up and running this week. I will start migrating sites to it, with APUG being the last. The new server is a higher spec so we should not have any performance issues. The new host has a solid reputation, 1hr hardware SLA, 24x7x365 phone support and more. We'll be on a month to month contract and will see how it goes. I suspect I'll migrate APUG sometime between the 23-27th. The site may have downtime of 1-2days max but with any luck 1/2 day should do it. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
