The great thing about servers is they can be pushed to limits. Saves money, and allows for a decent density of customers, but at some point you hit limits. Things won’t go faster.
I’ve always been one who is not a “SMUSH EM IN!” type of business. I don’t oversell. I have limits on each box and I stick to them, not even a “Well this customer isn’t really using it…” type of line, if they are a user, they are taking up resources. Plain. Simple. Easy.
So this weekend I’ve been moving folks from one set of servers to another. A fresh new VPS cluster not using Virtualizor but Proxmox which seemed a little more “Grown up” to me. It’s been around for ages and finally just decided – transition = something new.
Things thus far are running insanely well. I was able to migrate a number of mail servers over with so far 0 issues. 0. As in none. This re-structure thus far is going great!
This blog even just finished it’s move over and it’s a bit more snappy network wise, pure SSD setup is snappy, and all of my settings carried over just have to shift a cPanel license as soon as the remaining two sites are fully migrated and then it’ll kick this out of “Trial Period” mode and onto full production.
An insanely busy week ahead. My body isn’t having it – long hours, high stress, deadlines galore. I’ve gotten a lot of things on my plate as of late as I noted with these contracts, one of which is going to live in a small Linux virtual here on my laptop so as I’m traveling the code goes with me and I can test in a dev environment which requires no network connection.
Thankfully the trip the first part is about 5.5 hours to Sacramento, which has WiFi, so occupy a small child, do some work over the VPN (which also is rebuilt and on this speedy network) and have hotspot in tow just in case – a lot try to squeeze into the next 3 days – thus why I’m posting the blog at just about 1AM vs. later tonight. Go Go Go. Lots to get accomplished and it feels more and more like so little time.
Have a good week all!
