Massive migration :D

We are finally moving our two main websites to new servers that will assure a great uptime and a pleasant navigation for both Chilean readers and international readers.

TecnoSquad is now hosted in MediaTemple. We signed for a Grid Server, this is basicly time share in a big cluster server. If you use more than that you can move to another plan. Up to now it has worked great, and the traffic already had a really impressive boost. Let´s see if at the end of this month we have some surprises 😀

On the other side, ChileHardware is being moved right now – it should be finished by tomorrow – to The Planet. We rented a dedicated Xeon 3060 with 4GB RAM and 4x250GB SATA disks in RAID 10 (basicly two RAID 0 in RAID 1 configuration, for fast writing speed and redundancy).

¿Why not have both websites in the same server? Even thought I think the server we rented in The Planet is capable of running both sites in the short term, this wouldn´t be too intelligent. Having them in two different machines, and even more in two different providers, diversifies risk.

I´m very happy with this, let´s hope everything goes fine, and our international readers can enjoy our content  just like in  big english-written websites.

    Heya JF
    I think the move to a double server, is playing things pretty safe.
    Better safe than sorry, incase by some chance that one server goes down and least the other is still making money 🙂

    Well Rory I´m really not into CPC or CPM, I just do fixed time contracts on direct sales. I don´t do CPC because it doesn´t work good for spanish sites, besides they pay horrible for spanish written sites.

    So basicly if my site goes down, I shouldn´t really care. But I do care. Because readers care. And readers are my sales 🙂
