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.

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


  3. 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…

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

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