Hey all,

This thread is for status updates about the impending server move. You heard right, ArmiTunes is moving to a much more powerful server with a faster Internet connection. For the first time in our >15 year history, the site won't be running on a hand-me-down PC running under my desk at home!

The new server is located in a datacenter in Montreal, Canada. It is a quad-core Xeon with 32GB of RAM, redundant disk and 200Mbit network capacity (compared to the current old Core 2 Duo with 4GB, no redundancy and 15Mbit/sec). So, it should be a whole bunch faster.

My goals here are to provide a faster web experience, more streams, modernize the encoder software, and do it all while saving some money (business class fiber-to-the-home isn't cheap!).

Step 1 of the move was completed today: the machine was installed and I set up a test 1000 listener relay on it. Please hammer away at this thing and we'll see if it works as well as advertised before moving on to Step 2.

Thanks for your continued support and enjoy the tunes!

-Armitage

New shiny server! Big Grin

I was hoping that maybe we can get a slightly higher bitrate on both MP3 and AAC

I like it. I was able to grab the stream quicker than with half of the others and no weird sounds like some of the others. Very nice Armi.

I'm copying the whole web tree to the new server now which is probably around 10GB. I've limited the transfer speed so it shouldn't interfere with the stream but the site may be a little slow for a while. Let me know if anyone experiences any big problems. Thanks!

Now copying all the music files to the new server. It's probably going to take 3-5 days. It shouldn't affect the stream any.

The Armitage NJ MP3 relay will be going away at the end of the month. If you use this one a lot, please make note and switch to another (or try out the new Canadian) relay.

Thanks!

I appreciate that info, Armi. I've had the New Jersey relay saved in Windows Media Player and have just automatically used it for years. I guess I'll try out that new Canadian relay, eh? Wink It's kinda, almost, sorta in my backyard, so to speak.
