BB38 has reached minimum thresholds.
The master server image for BB38.sonixcast.com has been moved to a new dedicated hardware primarily to allow for more resources for customers, but also to ensure for adequate resources are available for future customer sign-ups.
BB38 has been running in ‘hot-swap’ (switching between dedicated hardware) mode for the last 72 hours due to high loads and the decision has been made in order to eliminate any possible downtime to upgrade the backing hardware.
BB38 will run redundantly (all images running simultaneously) for the next 24 hours in order to allow adequate time for proper worldwide ip-address replication before taking the old images offline.
IP-Addresses will change, however these changes will be reflected in our worldwide DNS and AnyCastIP nodes and no customer impact is expected. Customers are however encouraged to double check any file uploads made within the last 72 hours to ensure that they were properly replicated during the upgrade process.
More upgrades in the works
BB34.sonixcast.com and cc.sonixcast.com images are very close to reaching minimum resource allotment and will be similarly upgraded to new hardware over the next days or weeks. In each case an announcement will be made separately.
