Wow.. 245 days have passed since the last big Maintenance work in the infrastructure. And more then 1 Year since the last upgrade.
Even if a high Uptime is considered good and the servers are present on the world map 24/7 it’s time for an infrastructure update. As the entire world is in isolation and i’m working from home I see an opportunity as I have found the needed time to perform an overhaul of the servers.
The planned changes are:
Timeline 02-05 May 2020
– Upgrade the storage of each VM to 1 TB Disks. Right now each is using 3/4 of the allocated space and in order to grow without problems it would be good to provision it upfront.
– Update the Data center infrastructure by updating the software for hosts, the management, storage, performing driver and firmware updates, etc.
Hardware Upgrade – Server Upgrade increasing capacity of compute and storage.
