Server move 12 dec confirmed + preliminary schedule
« on: December 09, 2009, 04:30:29 pm »

As we posted before we'll move our server from one data center to another, because our current provider decided to bill power usage while they didn't do that before.

We'll move to https://www.webxtra.eu/ where we will be colocated in the Easynet/Leaseweb datacenter. It'll eventually also save us 10 euros a month base costs.

The schedule
9.50 Leave my parents home with StealthEye and Volvo V70
10.00 Pickup Ghostshaw and drive to Amsterdam
11.00 Arrive at the DCG data center
11.10 Start work on removing server (so server will be shut down around this time)
12.10 Leave DCG data center and drive to Easynet/Leasewed data center
12.30 Arrive at new data center, lunch break
13.00 Meet up with Jeroen Klaver from Web://Xtra and start placing server
14.30 Start server and leave data center
15.30 Drop off Ghostshaw
15.40 Arrival at my parents home

This is what we currently estimate, so it could (of course) take longer.

This time however we don't need to do any difficult things like new hardware and such so it should be rpetty smooth except for traffic maybe.

And the obligatory beers before, meanwhile AND afterwards!

Godspeed! Break a leg! Or rather... don't... the server move would be delayed then...

Wish I could be there to help you.

Good luck with the server moving.
Instead of dropping ghost off at home, go party!

P.S. Donation of 10+ euros for whoever recommends me a good processor less than 200 euros. Money will not go to the person, but to BI muhuhuhuhuh

Blind, just a good processor? No specific platform?
Intel Xeon X3450 (same as Core i5 750, but with HT)

Here you go Blind.

That should be a good upgrade from your E6750 and it's less than 200 euros delivered.
