The ASP.NET Weblogs have become so popular that we are undertaking a range of hardware upgrades to handle the increased traffic. Two weeks ago we moved the ASP.NET Weblogs to dedicated web and database servers. Tonight we will upgrade the RAM on the database server to 16 gigabytes. We expect a 15 minute outage starting at about 10.15PM PDT as ORCSWeb shuts down the server, adds the additional RAM, and then restarts the server.
This hardware upgrade should result in increased performance across all of the ASP.NET Weblogs.
We apologize if this short outage will cause you any inconvenience, but we hope you and your visitors will enjoy the benefits of the upgrade.
