We are happy to announce that we are adding some new hardware to grow our web hosting capacity:
We've received shipment of some new blades for our web cluster, which will boost web hosting capacity by 50%. This will allow us to load balance web traffic across more physical servers, boosting overall speed and adding even more redundancy. We'll be working on adding these to the web cluster next week.
We've also been testing a new MySQL server for many months now. It's simply named "mysql.islandnet.com" and the folks who have already moved their databases on to it have noticed a speed boost. This server is actually running Percona, which is a drop-in replacement for MySQL that is faster and has more features. The hardware itself is also much more powerful with double the proccesors and quadruple the RAM of "mysql55.islandnet.com".
So - how do you import to the new MySQL server? It does not show up in the Database manager or the Database wizard...
If they are really large, phpMyAdmin could time out, in which case you can always do it with the "mysql" command at a shell prompt.
That said, I can often lay awake at night worrying about whether I have my site as patched as it should be... because I am now the systems administrator...
So I want to start migrating some of my sites back over to Islandnet -- so I can relax again.
I imagine, since I know my way around MySQL and PhpMyAdmin, I imagine I can drop my existing MySQL DB's into the new mysql.islandnet.com without any hassles, yes?
