Server Migration This Weekend

Hi Everyone -

We will be moving some servers around this weekend to scale things up a bit.  Will try and keep downtime (if any) to a minimum, but if you happen to hit Nirvana at a time when we’re momentarily off the air, we apologize in advance.  Keep an eye on @nirvanahq for updates as we go.

See you on the flip side…

    We have Nirvana (almost) up and running on our new servers, and will be running performance tests/tuning over the coming days before fully migrating off our old machines.

    For the geek curious:

    • Slicehost –> Linode
    • CentOS –> ArchLinux
    • Lighttpd –> Nginx
    • PHP 5.2 –> PHP 5.3
    • not enough ram –> much ram
    • … and more

    Can’t wait to see Nirvana fly.
    Mucho thanks to Joel for his infrastructure-fu.

  4. I have had a lot of trouble accessing nirvana today and yesterday – are you guys still running server updates/experiencing downtimes?

  6. We are aware of the problem and are working on a fix.

    Nirvana is currently intermittently running over capacity, and as a result has been occasionally unreachable. Note: there is no risk to your data. We are still running on the old server stack. We are doing benchmark / validation testing on the new stack right now. Hoping to get everything moved over in short order, once we’re comfortable that we can perform a smooth transition.

    Please bear with us…

  8. No problem – I understand you guys are still developing this thing.

    I love the service – thank you very much for the update :)


Nirvana is task management software that's 100% web-based. Based upon the well known Getting Things Done® (GTD®) method of keeping organized, it is fast, easy, available from anywhere.

What is GTD®?

GTD® rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them externally. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks.
