Site Issues…Again

By  | 

So the site has been blazing fast recently because we moved to a Dedicate Virtual server at Media Temple, but today the cluster my server was on went down…even though we switched to DEDICATED hosting.

Ugh.

Sorry again. I know some of you have told me I have nothing to apologize for, but hey…I hate when the site is down so much. Also, I’ve been stupidly busy today with the day job, so I wasn’t really able to do much except call Media Temple initially this morning and wait for a resolution.

Moving on…

    Man.. Good luck on the server deal! Unfortunately it looks like no hosting provider is perfect. While my server over at Serverbeach remained up, another friend’s in the same center crashed hard, losing all his data (which he thankfully had backups of).

    Hi Justin,

    Very sorry you were affected by this recent System Incident. We’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again. Definitely a bad first impression of the (dv). It is a solid contender, so I hope you can forgive us! :)

    Just wanted to clarify one thing:

    “the cluster my server was on went down”

    I’d swap ‘cluster’ with ‘host machine’, as the (dv) is not cluster-based – it uses Parallels Virtuozzo: http://www.parallels.com/products/virtuozzo/

    Thanks again for your patience while we worked through it.

    Take care!
