A somewhat important announcement
Its server moving time again! Hey its a monthly thing ok? Well not this time, this will be the last move for the next 12 months.
I’ve decided to do a Lease to Own program with a local colo, it’ll save me almost 300 bucks a month. I think this is worth the hassle of moving to a new server. Plus if I have any hardware problems its a quick 20min drive down the freeway with replacement parts.
This is also a big change as well, as some people are aware I host a few sites all on the same system (IQDB, TLwiki, Ammy, mirrormoon, and others). I’ve decided that moving forward I’m going to use Virtual Machines to separate the PHP and Ruby on Rail apps. Which software I will use to setup the VMs is undecided but I’m leaning to KVM. Originally I wanted to use Vmware ESXi but I don’t have globs of RAM to throw around on all the systems. If people have suggestions on which stack to use please let me know! (No cloud hosting stuff, I only have one server, so I don’t want to run openstack or something like that without multiple systems)
I also have another important announcement!….except I haven’t worked out all the details, so once that is done I’m going to write yet another blog post! Oh god I’m writing too much lately.
